Children can have a difficult time expressing themselves, and knowing what is “ok” for them to feel. Often kids are encouraged to just show their happier side. These storybooks help children admit to the unhappy emotions troubling them. Instead of pretending not to be lonely, the Worry Woos books hope to encourage children to acknowledge that they have unpleasant emotions and to start talking about them.
