4.0 out of 5 stars My Own Experience With 'The Huge Bag Of Worries' 9 April 2010
Format:Paperback
I was 7 years old (im 13 now) when i received this book, at the time i was having problems with bullies and it was very difficult, i got so worried i began to lose some of my hair. I was given this book by my mum and i read it a lot, it didn't make a substantial impact at the time, nor did it change the bullies but i started to tell my parents when i got worried and my hair stopped falling out. When i think back i can remember this book and it really did help.

"The Huge Bag of Worries" relates the simple story of a little girl who finds she is carrying an ever growing 'bag of worries'. She tries to think of ways to reduce her load but finds that everyone she wants to talk to about her 'bag' has so many of their own worries that she doesn't want to burden them further. Finally her Grandmother notices her growing 'bag of worries' and they work through her worries together. The girl finds there are lots of different ways of dealing with or sharing worries and feels a whole lot better once her 'bag of worries' has been cleared out.
Our family found this a useful aid in dealing with the stresses suffered by our 6 year old daughter who is hard of hearing. She has more on her plate than most and the story gave us very useful code for addressing her concerns. We continue to use the 'bag of worries' terminology and find that now we can go straight to the problem rather than the old guessing game we used to use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good starting point 6 July 2009
Format:Paperback
This book is a good starting point to talk about anxiety to a young child who is worrying about things - probably up to 6 or 7 year olds would enjoy the pictures and text.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money! 28 Feb 2011
Format:Paperback
I bought this book about 3 years for my son when he was going through a difficult time at school. He carried his own 'bag of worries' with him and didnt really know what to do with them. When we read this book he started to refer to his own worries, so while we talked we created an imaginary bag! He was able to dip into this bag to take out one of his own worries, this enabled him to talk about it! He is now 10years old and he still likes to read this story when he is concerned about anything!

I think this is a great story that all ages, even adults, can relate to. I am currently counselling young children and am considering using this book with one of the children.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book for kids and adults! 29 Nov 2010
Format:Paperback
This is a great little book which our Social Worker lent to us to read to our son who has difficulty with his emotions. The pictures are great and the message is poignant for both young and old, and goes to show how we can all become weighed down by taking on others worries as well as our own.
