Kevin Henkes always has wonderful and interesting characters in his stories and Wemberly is no exception! This book also has great illustrations! They are colorful, large and filled with emotion! Boys and Girls can relate to the character (Wemberly) and the subject of going off to school for the first time. I am a second grade teacher, and I love reading Kevin Henkes' books aloud (with great expression) to my students! This book is also great for reading out loud to children. I hope that you will give this book a chance because it is a great story with interesting characters and expressive pictures.

Wemberly is a sweet character that perhaps many first time students could relate to. Throughout the story Wemberly deals with many issues in which students also have to face. The book teaches children that their is truly no need to worry while still being humorous. Children will certainly enjoy the illustrations throughout the book.

I thought this was a very cute story for children. It is about a little mouse named Wemberly who was always worrying about something. Her mother, father, and grandmother always told her not to worry; however, she always did. Then, she remembered that the first day of school was coming up very soon, which made her worry more than she ever had before. She began worrying about things that might be wrong with her or that might happen on the first day of school. Once she arrived, she met a girl named Jewel who had a lot in common with her; therefore, she did worry quite as much. In fact, she worried so little that she left school telling the teacher that she would be back tomorrow "don't worry."I would read this book to children in kindergarten, first grade, and second grade. I would read this on the first day of school because it has to do with worrying about the first day of school, which is something that alot of children face. In addition, I would read this when learning about the letter "w" because it is a book that is full of words that begin with "w" and that emphasizes the "w" sound.

This book is about a little girl who worried about everything! Until her first day of school when she met someone who worried just as much as her. They became friends and they no longer worried anymore. This is a good book for students who worry too much, or to shed light on the effects of worrying.

This is a very cure book about feeling scared, and worrying about things. In the book Wemberly is always worried about everything especially about starting school. When she does start school she meets another girl a lot like her. Her friend also has a special stuffed animal and she is also worried a lot. They soon begin playing together and their worry goes away.

this book was really cute it reminded me of the book we read in class. i liked that it talked about her first day of school and how she was worried because most kids have the same thoughts.

In this story, Wemberly, a young mouse, worries about everything! The author takes the readers through her list of worries ¿ big ones and small ones. Wemberly worries constantly despite her grandmother telling her she worries too much. The source of her biggest worry is her first day of school. When she arrives however, her teacher introduces her to another student who also is carrying a doll and seems a bit shy. The two become instant friends and enjoy their first day of school together. As Wemberly leaves in the afternoon, she tells her teacher not to worry, that she will be back tomorrow!The first thing I thought about as I read this book was my younger sister! Boy, was she a worrier and she would have really loved this book. I am a worrier, too, (but just quiet about it) so I could relate to Wemberly. The last page leaves you with such a warm feeling! This would be a great book for parents to read to their children before that terrifying first day of school, or by the teacher. I think that most young students could relate to Wemberly¿s worries and knowing that they are not the only ones would be helpful! This book is a clear example of how, in picture books, illustrations reinforce the text. I am not used to having to look at illustrations to understand the text, but when I got to the page about Wemberly¿s birthday party, I realized I could not fully understand why her mother told Wemberly, ¿See. There was nothing to worry about. ¿ I could not figure out why until I looked at the illustrations and short dialogue included on the page.

I use this wonderful book at the beginning of the school year. Wemberly makes the adjustment to Kindergarten with the assurances of parents and Grandma. The illustrations are perfect!

This book is a great book to read to children who are just starting school. It shows them that other children are worried about things and that it is okay to stop worrying and have fun. The story is very well written and easy to read and comprehend. It is colorful and interesting to look at as well. Overall, this is the perfect book to read on the first day of school.

This is a cute book about a mouse who worries about everything under the sun. She worries about big things, small things, and things in between. She worries all throughout the day. People are worried about how much she worries.

This book is about a cute little mouse named Wemberly. She worries about everything, even though her parents tell her to relax. She is especially worried about her first day of school, untill she finds another mouse who wories just as much. She becomes friends with the other mouse, and forgets about worrying.

Excellent book. Prefect to read on the first day of school to the lower grades. Could use for a lesson on feelings and working through problems.

This is a story about a mouse named Wemberly who worries about everything. School approaches and she worries about what will happen there. The teacher introduces her to another student names Jewel who worries as well. The two begin to talk and then Wemberly's worries decrease. It seems she is doing much better now that she has a new friend.

This book is about a rabbit that worries about everything, all the time. The book had many diffrent scenerios where she at the park or her birthday party and she just worries about every single thing that could happen. Finally, at the end of the story she meets another rabbit just like her and they become best worried friends together. This book could be nice for children to realized that even if it's different or phobias they could have some silimalities that could help build friendships.

Wemberly worries about almost everything, and worrying gets her nowhere. She is very nervous about the first day of school, but her fears quickly go away when she meets a little girl, Jewel, who is just as apprehensive as she is. The two become friends, and before the day ends, Wemberly stops worrying altogether. This is a great book to read to kids who have fears.
DayehSensei on LibraryThing 3 months ago
This adorable Kevin Henkes classic can and should be read to any group of apprehensive children during the first days of school. First time kindergarteners/preschoolers will especially appreciate this tale of a young worrier and her first pursuits of friendship and fitting in. One of my all time favorites!

Poor Wemberly is always Worried. She fears everything around her, but she soon finds that she has a whole list of things to worry about when she faces the first day of nursery school. Wemberly soon finds another little girl who is worried too. They becomes friends and become less worried together. Kevin Henkes makes the best books. The are always feel is life and a great message.

Wemberly worries about everything. Now school is starting and she worries even more. She wonders what will school be like and if she will make friends. A great book to read to kids who are having worries for their own.
alliecipa on LibraryThing 3 months ago
This is a great story to read to children because everyone can relate to worrying about something. Wemberly is a little mouse who is worried about everything- especially when it comes to starting kindergarten! With the support of her family and the new friend she makes at school, she becomes more comfortable and puts some of her worries aside to have fun!

I feel like Kevin Henkes glimpsed into my childhood as a little girl and wrote about me!! Now I share this book and all the other books by Kevin Henkes with my 1st graders every year.

I strongly reccommend this book to any parent or teacher working with young children. This book does an excellent job of relating to young children and the many worries that they may have. The character, Wemberly, is a very lovable mouse that many children will be able to relate to. The book deals with the issue of anxiety as Wemberly gets ready to begin school. This book will help many children better transition into the school setting, and other changes in life as well. Wemberly Worried is an outstanding book.

Wemberly Worried is a wonderful book to ease the transition to school for parents and preschool children. The mouse is a delightful character that the children will embrace and understand. I have used this book with a number of families at the beginning of this school year. Parents mentioned that the children were delighted with the pictures and character and it helped them work through some of their worries about being away from their parents. Wemberly seems to reflect the feelings of young children. The book is outstanding.
