Review for Willie the Worrying Dog

How many of us worry needlessly? This children’s book illustrates “worry” so eloquently. I like how a dog was used as the worry wart, making it attractive and nonjudgmental to children. They are able to relax and see others have the same fears as they do. The book ends with favorable resolutions to each of the dog’s concerns, which further helps the child understand that the worst isn’t the only outcome of the situation. Fun and fitting illustrations make this a well-rounded book that will surely help many children handle anxiety.
