GO AWAY

WORRY MONSTER

By Brooke Graham and Robin Tatlow-Lorde (Illustrator)

Worry Monster loves "helping" Archie worry, especially the night before he starts his new school. Archie feels so anxious that his head hurts, his tummy flutters and his heart pounds. He soon realizes the only way to feel better is to make Worry Monster go away. He does his belly breaths and faces facts to challenge his inner fears.
