With full-color illustrations on every page, this captivating book is intended to be read independently by the young reader or accompanied by an adult in its use. It reassures children with obsessive tendencies who imagine negative “But what if…” scenarios. The child heroine becomes reassured that there are just as many good possibilities as fretful ones. Following the story, a series of pictures invites the reader to tell a story about being worried, and a special section for adults provides discussion questions and suggestions for guiding a child toward ways to relieve anxiety and worrisomeness. In addition to its obvious use in a family setting, this book’s hardbound binding and sturdy paper pages render it ideal for frequent use, as in a school library or professional office.
