David and the Worry Beast is a fiction book that starts out with David playing in a basketball game It's the last couple seconds of the game and he ends up missing a shot which ends in their loss After the game David's coach tells him how he played a great game and not to worry about what happened David doesn't believe in his coach and still worries over his missed shot and as he his changing clothes he notices a small furry creature next to him At first he thinks it's just a stuffed animal but uickly realizes how its alive and is afraid of it When he gets home his parents try to console him about the game however that doesn't make him worry any less When he gets to his room he realizes that the creature is bigger than before and it tells him that it is his worry beast and will cause him to worry even David continues to worry as he gets to school and the beast continues to grow larger and does so until he talks about his anxiety and resolves the issues I feel that the book would be interesting for children because of its colorful illustrations that are drawn accurately to what is being told in the story It also helps enhance the story by showing the growth of the worry beast throughout the book so that children can get a visual representation of how much David has been worrying The story itself allows children to think about their worries and how they can talk about it with others to get rid of it just like the stories problem and resolution The characters were convincing because they all accurately portrayed how the adults would react when dealing with a child with anxiety and how a child might feel with anxiety Interestingly David's fellow classmates represented a variety of cultural groups which also included the author and illustrator's but the other cultural groups had no impact in the story This book says that if a child does his best then that is enough What if it isn't enough If a child's best is to get 30% on a math test he still fails That's not good enough Why did the parents tell him just to try his best? Why didn't they help him study? Instead of not worrying and saying just try and have fun a child should be taught to solve the problem Worried about a math test? study worried about a basketball game? practice This is a good book to teach young children how to deal with anxiety It encourages the kids to deal with their emotions and not try to hide them It gives great tips to deal with emotions for the kids and also the parents It's a great book to introduce both children and adults on emotions and helpful ways to deal with them Great for children to see that anxiety is natural and give some tools how to cope THank you Anxiety and worry Parent tips at the end of the book This is an excellent book for helping children address anxiety and stress including both identifying what they are feeling and introducing some coping strategies Can't really love a book like this but it is helpful I was one worried kid Like David I was often consumed by worry I don't recall any kids' books about anxiety being available at the time
