A back-to-school favorite

Wemberly worried about spilling her juice, about shrinking in the bathtub, even about snakes in the radiator. She worried morning, noon, and night. "Worry, worry, worry," her family said. "Too much worry." And Wemberly worried about one thing most of all: her first day of school. But when she meets a fellow worrywart in her class, Wemberly realizes that school is too much fun to waste time worrying!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have you a worrier? This is a book for you! Kevin Henkes does it again, heading to school can be a scary, worrying experience for many children as it is a new experience and so in Kevin’s usual fashion, he creates a character your child, and mine can relate to and learn from. Kevin’s stories and illustrations especially for my family in the mouse books can help tackle subjects that are tough to deal with in the minds of our little ones. And these books help to pave the way to teach how to take on things you may not have experienced before...bullying for Chrysanthemum, or your first day for Wemberly and the who subject of worrying about things is seen in a new light.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wemberly Worried (Mouse Books) by Kevin Henkes Wemberly is a girl mouse who worries about everything, and the things she worries about really are things that children worry about, small, big, and in-between things. And, Wemberly’s fears do lessen by the end of the book, but there’s not some sort of happily ever after ending, and I really appreciate that.I don’t think this was intended but I love how it subtly showed that telling someone not to worry isn’t particularly effective.I especially liked the grandmother’s “go with the flow” tee shirt
