Books About All Things Worrysome for Children

by paperfacets

On vacation one time I discovered a series of books about the WorryWoo. The colorful books are instantly recognized as books for kids, but the monsters are surprisingly all new.

What is the WorryWoo? It is a series of books by Andi Green of some worrisome moods. Sometimes there can be frightening or puzzling moods stuck in a kid's head, being like a monster waving in front of all else that is happening.

Worry monsters highlight a new school or meeting a new babysitter, and a look at one of these book monsters can help little minds through the troubling worry.

All the WorryWoos are colorful monsters by Andi Green, an artist living in New York City.

The WorryWoo characters are drawings that Andi Green has made all her life. The worry monsters were made public at an art exhibition some years ago.  A suggestion sparked a project and the WorryWoo book series came into being after many years of work and, well, I would think a little worry.

Human feelings, and the fact they can become Monsters, if you are not attuned to their needs and solutions are what the books are about.

Six WorryWoo books and cuddly plush dolls to help the little story lovers master the everyday emotions that sometimes grow too big.

Who knows, there may be a Worrywoo someday for all moods known to child and parent too.

I Discovered the Books at Anderson's Split Pea Soup Restaurant

I noticed the monster books at a restaurant stop along Hwy. 5 in the middle of California. (That means in the middle of nowhere.)

Anderson's Split Pea Soup is famous to the CA traveler who likes to go back and forth between North California and South California. The original roadside eatery is on Hwy 101 and there is one on Hwy 5. Hwy 101 was a north-south road far before Hwy 5. Hwy 5 was completed for full border to border traffic in 1972.

There is a lot of gray area, or brownish like in California, between North and South, just like in our emotions.

Green soup may be a big worry to a toddler, but Mom can buy one of these WorryWoo books as she leaves, and make everything okay by the time the family destination is reached. Reading to young ones in the car has them strapped and attention focused on Mom and Dad in front. I thought the restaurant had a perfect idea for diversions in the car.

I followed with some Internet exploring and found out the author's subject was in demand with young parents seeking answers to their child's many questions about emotions.

paperfacets, It can be reassuring for children to find comfortable ways to understand worry monsters. Andi Green's worry monsters are completely comforting.

I love the idea of this - children have their own worries and insecurities and it is so nice for a set of books to help them with this.

WriterArtist on 04/09/2014

I haven't read a WorryWoo book but the themes are fascinating. I like the idea of answering all the woes and queries that a kid may face in the form of stories.
