Everybody Feels Worried by Moira Harvey & illustrated by Holly Sterling

Everybody Feels Worried is full of practical advice and a clear understanding of the real-life situations children are facing. Life can be worrying, especially at the moment, and it’s so important that children learn to cope with their worries and build resilience and strength to face each new day.

This book addresses the “What if…” worries that keep children awake at night and cause anxiety to build. It clearly shows how talking with someone about these worries can help the concerns to disappear. With a friendly style and stories of actual children feeling worried, readers will be able to relate to the scenarios and apply them to their own situations.

The illustrations are incredibly welcoming and calming. The gentle colours and friendly faces will help children to feel at ease and  open up about their concerns.

At the end of the book, the helpful glossary of story words and “Next Steps” advice for adults make Everybody Feels Worried a very useful tool for parents, carers and teachers supporting children as they learn about their emotions and how to manage them.

The accessible picture book style makes this non-fiction book for young readers a great starter for books about feelings, mental health and PSHE.  As a part of the “Everybody Feels…” series, Everybody Feels Worried will be a welcome addition to home and school bookshelves alike.

Thank you to NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group for this lovely book which will be published in July 2020!
