Baby Worries

Baby Worries book cover
A baby blinking & looking thoughtful

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.

Literary Titan Gold Book Award

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.”

Mother of 7 year old girl

My Feelings Activity Book

Created specifically to support Baby Worries.

This book is a fun introduction to exploring feelings with children aged 7-11 years.


The activities include:

  • Identifying and recording emotions/ feelings

  • Writing about feelings

  • Empathising with others

  • Solving problems

  • Positive affirmation posters

  • Puzzles, mazes, colouring, designing

​The main purpose of the activities is to provide an opportunity for your child to think about their own feelings in a non-threatening, fun way. When children can identify their feelings, they are better able to work through them in a positive way.
