Ruby Finds a Worry by Percival
Ruby loves being Ruby—swinging up really high and exploring her backyard. But one day, Ruby finds a worry.
At first, it's not such a big worry. But each day, it grows a little bigger. And a little bigger. Then the worry is ENORMOUS, and it's all she can think about. Until she discovers that everyone has worries, and the best way to get rid of them is to talk about them.
This perceptive and poignant story from the author/illustrator of Perfectly Norman is the perfect springboard for talking to children about sharing their hidden worries.
