Meet Ruby — a happy, curious, imaginative girl. But one day, she finds something unexpected: a Worry. It's not such a big Worry, at first. But every day, it grows a little bigger... And a little bigger... Until eventually, the Worry is ENORMOUS and is all she can think about.
But when Ruby befriends a young boy, she discovers that everyone has worries, and not only that, there's a great way to get rid of them too. This perceptive, poignant, and kid-friendly story from the Big Bright Feelings series is the perfect springboard for talking to children about emotional intelligence and sharing hidden anxieties.
"Ruby barely sees the Worry — depicted as a blob of yellow with a frowny unibrow — at first, but as it hovers, the more she notices it and the larger it grows. The longer Ruby is affected by this Worry, the fewer colors appear on the page. Though she tries not to pay attention to the Worry, which no one else can see, ignoring it prevents her from enjoying the things that she once loved.... By the book’s conclusion, Ruby learns to control her Worry by talking about what worries her, a priceless lesson for any child — or adult — conveyed in a beautifully child-friendly manner." — Kirkus Reviews
