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.
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.
