"The entire collection of WorryWoo books are awesome. Each book covers topics that children may possibly have encountered or experienced. The book enages children in a respectful manner while offering sound wisdom about how to navigate feelings and thoughts."
"From the moment we opened the first page of this beautiful book, we had goosebumps because the words inside are exactly what every child needs to hear! The Hug creates a warm and safe space as you read the story, inviting each child to dive into the wonderful world of The Hug and feel like the most special child in the world! The Hug is a book that promotes comfort, love and kindness and makes each child feel unique and important, what every child needs. I honestly cannot speak highly enough of this book and all that it promotes! A nightly read in our house and one that we promote with all of our clients, a book for every child!"
"The Hug shares the message that our love and belief in our children stay with them through the day and that comfort can come from within."
"I can truly say that every child who has been in contact with the Woos gains something positive from their experience. It often leads to pleas to bring home their own Woos, and these then accompany them to each session to meet my own “Worry Woo Crew”. I marvel at them every day, because they not only normalise feelings for children, but they also help teach them that the worries are a part of them and that they are “OK”. Brilliance!"
"The stories have helped young children to start identifying complex emotions. As a result students are more able to verbally communicate their feelings rather than acting out in irrational or unsafe behaviour. This has helped to lessen incidents and improve peer relationships."
“A very powerful message written in a way that kids understand. I bought this book as a gift to my daughters preschool so that more children can hear the message that they are special in every way. I definitely recommend this book.”
“This is not only a truly adorable book but it has been a great teaching resource, helping to build strength and confidence into the students I teach. The students had so much fun making their very own Hugs and love to hear the story over and over. And now with our very own Hug classroom mascot the students are constantly being reminded of their worth. Thank you for such a wonderful and inspiring book.”
“The first five years of learning and development is so important for children, and helping children to develop a strong sense of wellbeing is a vital part of this learning and future journey in life. This beautiful book encourages and promotes children's sense of worth, builds confidence and self- esteem. We want children to develop positive self-identities, feel comfortable in their environments, be inspired, and be successful. Through our words and affirmations we can build children up, just like in "The Hug", in the hope that they can feel safe, secure and become aware of just how unique and important they are.”
