Baby Worries is a funny picture book filled with colourful, laugh-out-loud illustrations.
Perfect for 4 -8 year-olds who love silly books and parents who love humour.
Baby meets his extended family for the first time and starts to worry about what he might look like when he grows up. Will he have huge bushy eyebrows like Uncle Max and scare the pants off his friends?
The ending is not what you might expect.
A book to be enjoyed for sheer entertainment, but it can also be used as a starting point for discussions about feelings and worries.
Wishing Shelf Book award comments from parents and teachers:
“It’s not often I find a totally original picture book. But I did with this book. Superbly illustrated, highly amusing, and very accessibly written for young children. What a gem!” Primary school teacher
“Adorable book, sweet ending, very funny too. The children in my class of 7-year-olds thought this was the best ever! Congrats to the author and illustrator.” Primary school teacher
“I get so tired of reading ‘message’ picture books with my children where the author simply wants to preach to the child and forgets how important it is to enthral them too. Thankfully, this author understands what young children want. They want to laugh A LOT! For that, this book is perfect.”
