Overview

Perfect for a thought-provoking assembly (particularly for those children with exams coming up!). A compelling picture book which can be used as a spring board into what worries children today. The lively, comic-style pictures and the general nature of the worries make this excellent for any number of problems. The message of the book is clear—find someone who will listen and talk about your worries. A big book version perfect for encouraging group discussions on how to deal with worries.

Wherever Jenny goes, her worries follow her—in a big blue bag. They are there when she goes swimming, when she is watching TV, and even when she is in the lavatory. Jenny decides they will have to go. But who can help her?

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
A compelling picture book.—Write Away

This is an excellent resource for those working with anxious children. The children love the story and the beautifully bright illustrations are sure to engage even the most reticent child.—Amazon reviewer

The book prompted a lovely discussion and was a great way for [my son] to articulate his emotions. Fantastic book - road tested and heartedly recommended!—The Fostering Network

Interesting, funny, brilliant and fantastic.—Books for Keeps

A good starting point to encourage children to discuss their anxieties and fears. It may also help children to realise that many children suffer with anxiety.—Little Parachutes
