Testimonials "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." - Amazon Review
"This is our 2nd year with the worry woos and our 3rd grade teachers and students love them!!!"
- Eileen, 3rd Grade Teacher
"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."
- NJ, Kindergarten Teacher
