Young children face many strong feelings, some of which can be difficult to handle. This series uses humor and compassion to show children how to help others - and themselves - feel better when dealing with challenging emotions. Lively art illustrates the stories with charm and energy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't worry, get happy! Ava is a wonderful confidant who senses when those around her are worried. She does her best to either help them herself, as she did for her smaller brother, Noah, who is very worried about not being able to complete his homework because he preconconceives it too hard, or with a friend at school whose parents are going through a divorce and needs to talk to them about her feelings concerning her uncertain future. Ava then experiences worry first-hand when she has to face an up-coming dentist appointment that is looming the next day. Will she be able to cope with those fears and put into practice what she has been mentoring others to do? The lovely and expressive illustrations focus on the the feelings associated with "worry". The book helps young children understand and deal with their anxieties. Worry is a very strong, real emotion that can be overcome by discussing it and seeking help from others when it overtakes you. The child characters in the book are presented in different scenarios that are relatable to kids reading the book thus making it easier to open up and discuss fears and apprehensions they may be experiencing with a parent, teacher or caregiver. The book is perfect for a home or a classroom setting. I highly recommend this book and encourage you to check out the complete series.
