Kids also love this book and drawing their own busy dizzy. It can help children to understand why they feel what they do and encourage them in life.
This is a beautiful book that could be used as a self-help method for young and old alike. it is simple but perfect. We all suffer self doubt and yet this book encourages children to believe that they are capable.
Dr. Orly Katz writes books for early childhood. In Israel she is well known for her dedication to children and their education. In this book she has begun a conversation that we can all relate. How do we overcome our fears that we are not good enough. Do we sit and wait to feel smarter, do we try harder, or do we try to remove those negative feelings? 'Busy Dizzy' is one of those voices that we encounter as a small child, they tell us to cry when we are sad instead of expressing our fears. Dr. Katz tells us about three children, Sophie, David and Joe who all faced their demons with the aid of their teacher, Miss Young.
This book is such a wonderful choice for all children. Do we talk with our children about how to face their fears. This book will open discussions for parents and children, grandparents and aunts and uncles. It is a wonderful,vehicle for teachers at school to open the topic, so that everyone can express their fears and come up with solutions to face them. Every family should own this book and read it often.
Highly Recommended. 01-13-14
I like the extra activities in the book for a more in depth look at the issue.
As anyone who has had children knows can tell you; trying to communicate to them regarding certain things at their age is at times quite an arduous task, especially when it comes to their being disappointed or discourage. The author, Orly Katz, using her knowledge has done a marvelous in accomplishing precisely that by not trying to hit the child reading this book over the head about not being discouraged or disappointed when something doesn’t go the way you had wanted it to be. More important she hasn’t spoken down to the child either; which would have turned the child off to about what is being said. Instead Ms. Katz has made sure her book speaks to the child at their level, making it easy for them to relate to what they’re reading.
Credit for the success of this book must be given to the book’s translator, who did a marvelous job in keeping her translation to the intent of the book’s original language which had been made harder due to the rhyming element of the book. When you have a rhyming for a book’s the story aids in grabbing and keeping the child’s attention for the book, from the beginning to the end. If you have any doubts regarding this, just think of the Dr. Seuss you read as a child, I know I have.
For helping children in not being disappointed or getting discouraged, this book is getting 5 STARS.
I LOVE THIS BOOK! Dr. Katz has developed a wonderful book for teachers and parents who have little ones just beginning school or preschool. It's a way of explaining those little voices in their head, you know the ones, they say we're unhappy or scared, we're lonely or frightened? You and your littles will love this book. I'm sure it will be one you read many, many times. I enjoyed the fact it gave a name to those feelings. I know littles will have fun with it. I recommend this to parents and teachers alike. It's a terrific tool, use it!
I found no issues with this one.
I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because I wish I'd had it when my teens were young. It's the perfect tool.

A lovely story that has both ourselves and our children entertained. It's not 100% clear who get more excited with Busy Dizzy ...
Dr. Katz has brilliantly merged Aristotlean concepts and motivational pyschology into a kid's book. This is sheer genius. The story tells us how three kids in a school are visited by Busy Dizzy (negative thoughts) and how their teacher Miss Young helps them out.
I had a great time sitting with my daughter and reading the story to her. We both enjoyed it a lot. Thank you Dr. Katz!
