Wemberly worried about everything. Big things. Little things. And things in between. Then it was time for school to start.And Wemberly worried even more. If you ever worry (or know someone who does), this is the book for you.
Great book about facing your fears by going forward and finding a friend! Kevin Henkes illustrations are always fantastic.
Wemberly Worried is a good addition to the library of any young reader who struggles with worrying. The book can help start a conversation about worrying needlessly and choosing to replace worry with hope and confidence.
This book would be great for a little one who is usually worried. Also, it may be helpful for a caregiver to try to have more conversations with a little worrier instead of just saying “Don’t worry.”
