The Worrysaurus by Rachel Bright and Chris Chatterton

Life is a series of challenges, even for children. Learning to deal with those challenges constructively can have a positive influence on a child’s life.

This week’s Picture Book of the Week is The Worrysaurus, written by Rachel Bright and illustrated by Chris Chatterton.

About the Book:

The Worrysaurus is about a young dinosaur who wakes up and plans a blissful day. Everything is going as planned until worries start to creep in. Did he have enough to eat? Would he get lost? Suddenly, he was scared. A storm was coming, said a lizard. Worrysaurus didn’t know what to do. In his mind, everything went dark, until he finds a way to chase the worrying thoughts away.

Writing Exercise:

Worrysaurus is overcome by his fears until he remembers something that made him that helps him let go. The writing challenge for the week is to write about a time you were really worried about something and how you recovered.

Happy Writing!
