Teachers and parents will love What Should I Do When I Feel Worried? as an introduction to a discussion about feelings of worry and anxiety and how to handle them. Author Charlie Lumière wants children to recognize when they’re feeling worried and then how to change their reaction to anxiety. She then effectively demonstrates how children can deal with it. She provides children with tools to react in a more positive way when they are experiencing worry or anxiety. Parents and teachers can use this book as a launching pad to start a discussion that it’s okay to feel worried sometimes but remind them they have the power to make themselves feel better. The book provides readers with ideas to support worriers or anxious children.
“What should I do to feel calm again?” writes Charlie Lumière in What Should I Do When I Feel Worried? After outlining some methods children use to deal with worry, the writer shows us more positive methods of regaining control of their emotions. Charlie Lumière starts with some humorous methods of dealing with their feelings that will help to get a child’s attention, and then demonstrates other methods of calming their reactions. Illustrator Hilman Makhluf provides simple illustrations of a turtle experiencing various feelings of insecurity and how he could react to them. Each page of this easy-to-read book has a bright color and contains simple artwork or a highly readable font. I believe all school and public libraries will benefit from this book on their shelves and that parents will want to read it with their children.
