Ratings and Reviews
I use this book often in my practice and wish the author would come out with more. Perfectly done with very profound and healing message.
Please update the app so that it woks with my iPad. Not cool that I need it and you didn't update.
Such a charming way to help the worries go away!
This is just so cute- the illustrations, interactivity and narration are superb. The storyline is all about the "Worry Bug" growing with each of Wince's new worries. Of course at the end, he goes to the library to learn more about what to do. I love the page where you can record your worries for the bug to eat- my kid thought this was fabulous- you can jump to all the different pages/ scenes in the story by tapping the bug in the top right hand corner of the page, but I would love if the bug scene were outlined in red so you can find it quickly among the pages- I think referring back to this part and "feeding the Worry Bug" would be therapeutic. I wouldn't mind seeing a few suggestions about what to do instead of worrying, but all in all a very positive message. Loved it!
