One day a once carefree Ruby begins to feel worried and as she holds on to her worry it gets BIGGER.
Ruby's worry continues to grow until it feels too big to manage, never leaving her alone. And the fact that other people couldn't see it didn't mean it wasn't there. Still, Ruby tried to ignore it herself. Only she couldn't and eventually it was so big that there wasn’t really any room left for happiness.
Ruby soon discovers that she isn't the only one with a worry and after talking to a boy about his own worry something amazing happens! I will let you read the book to find out what. But I will say this, this book is a reminder of what can happen when we talk about the things that trouble us; how freeing it can be! It may also help readers to see that feeling worried is something that is experienced by all of us, adults and children. Even so, we don't have to keep our worries. We can let go of them, making more room for the good stuff; making more room for joy.
