Publisher: London BAAF 2008Description: 22 p. : col. ill. ; 23 cm., 8 p.ISBN: 9781905664313.Subject(s): JUVENILE LITERATURE | ANXIETY | BEHAVIOUR MODIFICATIONSummary: "All young children have worries, but looked after children may have more worries than most as they lack the reassurance and security of permanent, stable family life. In this colourful picture book for young children, Morris the Mole finds out that talking about his problems, and facing his worries with the help of others, is more helpful than hiding his fears. Morris has a secret. He has lots of worries - in fact he's got a big bundle of them. The worries fill up his bedroom which means he can't sleep and Morris doesn't know what to do. There are squiggly, wriggly worries, thorny, spiky ones, and even some TERRORS which Morris is too scared to touch. The worries float around his head, prick his paws and make him shiver. He's scared to tell the other woodland animals about them. But one day, Morris finds a friend who can help him, and realises that problems are easier to deal with when you've got someone to talk to. Suddenly the worries don't seem so frightening anymore.The book explores the importance of sharing worries and thereby learning to cope with and manage them. Although Morris has many worries, their exact nature is left unsaid, enabling adults to use this story with any child suffering with any worries. A booklet called My Book of Worries - is included at the back of the book for children to draw and write about their own worries and concerns." - PUBLISHERS WEBSITE
