Mrs Kershaw shares the story 'The Worries':

Please join Mrs Kershaw as she shares the story 'The Worries - Sohal Finds a Friend' by Jion Sheibani.


 

This book was only published by Penguin Books in January this year (2021), and it aims to help children understand that everyone has worries and that talking about our worries and anxieties, rather than ignoring them, is the best way to deal with them and make them go away.  It's written in a very funny, cheeky and appealing way for children.  This is what the Penguin website says about this book:

 

Funny, sweet and very useful for opening conversations with anxious children' - Guardian

Everyone feels worried sometimes. But what if your worries came to life and started following you around?  Sohal worries about a lot of things: the dark, mutant sheep, being alone - you name it, he worries about it! So one night he tries drawing his worries to make himself feel better - and somehow they look a lot less worrying once they're scribbled down.  

But then imagine Sohal's surprise when he wakes up the next morning to find a set of funny, furry friends at the end of his bed!  His worries have come to life, and it's not long before Hurt, Fail, Anger, Big and Alone have turned his world upside down. Now it's up to Sohal to work out how to keep his worries under control - and have some serious fun while he's at it!
  The Truth Pixie meets Inside Out in this hilarious, highly illustrated new series, perfect for helping children gently work through their worries and concentrate on having fun.
