jnr book worms book review,
this is a beautiful book and wonderfully illustrated it is a must have tool for parents and educators in helping kids deal with anxiety and worries that little ones can have, I have found it quite useful as a grown up as well, to remember that we don’t need to look at worst case scenario.
I found it to be written in a way that really opens up the door to discussions about worries and how to manage them and helps little ones understand their emotions.
The illustrations are non gender specific and children fall in love with the character, I delighted in watching the kids attempt to make their own Loppy
