Ruby’s Worry: A Big Bright Feelings Book
About this deal
Kudos to Tom and his illustrations. They really make the story come alive. However, I just was not that impressed with the book. Was it a little too long? Maybe. Would kids get the message? Probably. It just was not for me. Ruby Finds a Worry just does not have the flow and rhythm that I enjoy in most kids book. Children love the story 'Ruby's Worry'. It is a wonderful book that promotes talking about feelings. Teachers and pupils will discuss how we feel in different situations and scenarios and how talking to others about our worries can help. Children will be able to see links between different subjects, which leads to deeper, more valuable learning. It is very important for a child's health and wellbeing for them to recognise how they feel and what to do if they feel they need help with their mental health. Who is this topic web for?

This book is a great way to make children aware on how they can deal with their own worries and it shows them that they're not alone as everyone gets anxious or worried at some point of their lives. A perceptive and poignant story that is a must-have for all children's bookshelves. From Tom Percival's bestselling Big Bright Feelings series, this is the perfect book for discussing childhood worries and anxieties, no matter how big or small they may be. He grew up in a remote and beautiful part of South Shropshire. On reflection this seemed rather more remote than beautiful, owing to the fact that he lived in a small caravan without electricity, mains water or any sensible form of heating. He thinks that he’s probably one of the few people in his peer group to have learnt to read by gas lamp.
