Rachel Bright’s work is no stranger here on my blog. You may recall the book The Way Home for Wolf well her latest book The Worrysaurus is fantastic. This reassuring read all about worries will be a great addition to all libraries.
A young dinosaur is planning a picnic. He is rather organised and prepares everything well in advance. Some might describe him as a natural worrier but he’s a dinosaur who liked to know “what lay ahead.” Soon the dinosaur begins to get little worried thoughts and he just can’t seem to shift them. These worries then become more intense and his conversation with a lizard really doesn’t help. Will these worries go away?
Thankfully The young dinosaur recalls what his mamma has shared with him and a special tin in his bag assists dinosaur in these worries floating away, just like little butterflies.
This book was on my list of books I was excited about for 2019 and it hasn’t disappointed. Rachel Bright so brilliantly weaves in important topics within her writing and together with Chris Chatterton’s expressive, adorable illustrations of a young dinosaur this is a great book.
Written with an upbeat rhythmic text, this is a super read aloud and also a rather important read on anxieties and mental well being for young ones.
