Woe The Worried wasn't always worried. In fact, he used to be quite relaxed. But after a traumatic experience battling a mean and nasty doughnut monster, Woe begins to transform. Woe begins to have both physical and emotional symptoms of stress, and yet is scared to share his new anxious feelings with others.

He learns that emotional expression is important and that feelings are always changing!

My daughter 10 years old says..."This book embraces ways to calm you down when you feel sad and lets you know that it is always ok to talk to a friend about your feelings. It lets you know that its ok to be mad and sad and how you are feeling without having to keep them in. And you can always talk to someone you trust about nightmares and things like that."

The book is very small but long with very few illustrations and none that are colorful. The wording and names are overly complicated. Possibly geared towards older children. I used this with 8 year olds.
I read this book side by side with a 4th grade student. This student carries a lot of worry that isn't his. This book helped him to differentiate his worry from others worries. It also helped lead us into a dialog and facilities the conversation
