Go Away, Worry Monster!

USD $18.99 Tax Included

Worry Monster loves ‘helping’ Archie worry, especially the night before he starts his new school. Archie feels so anxious that his head hurts, his tummy flutters and his heart pounds. He soon realizes the only way to feel better is to make Worry Monster go away. He does his belly breaths and faces facts to challenge his inner fears. Children have the potential to engage and empathise with Archie and Worry Monster both through the text and the subtle gestures and fleeting emotions captured in the beautiful illustrations.

Encouraging children to name their anxiety is an evidence-based, current strategy used by psychologists to assist children in separating themselves from their anxiety. Go Away, Worry Monster!  gives children this and other useful strategies to cope, showing them how to make their own Worry Monsters leave during stressful periods of their lives, from starting or changing schools, to a change in family dynamics. Created by an author and illustrator passionate about helping children to cope with common emotional difficulties, this is an invaluable, life-changing resource for young children and their parents in guiding emotional development.

How my daughter made her worries go away

When Charlotte was little I used to joke with my husband, Wade saying how could we-two introverted people create such a blithe and gregarious child? At only four years of age our daughter delighted in dancing on stage, was obsessed with putting on ‘shows’ and was utterly fearless.
