Last one done! Hurray!

I almost wish I had this book earlier, because I think it does a good job of helping anxious kids with the idea of a worry tree to hang your worries on at night so that you can sleep. Maybe I need to paint one in my own room. ( )

Juliet worries about everything. She is constantly tormented by her younger sister, Ophelia. Her dad could be described as a “mad scientist” and is oblivious to everything except his inventions. Her Grandmother is a retired professor who hasn’t embraced the thrill of craft class at the senior center. Mom is a psychologist who’s solution to family friction is to play the “tell me how you really feel” game. And then there are the friends. There is hope for Juliet, however, when an old mural is discovered beneath peeling wallpaper. It is the Worry Tree and is filled with helpful animals to whom you can entrust all your problems while you sleep. (Grades 3-5) ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0805087915, Hardcover)

Juliet’s a worrywart, and no wonder! Her little sister, Oaf, follows her around taking notes and singing “The Irritating Song” all day long. Her parents are always arguing about Dad’s clutter. Nana’s so tired of craft lessons that she starts barbecuing things in the middle of the night. And Juliet’s friends Lindsay and Gemma are competing to see which of them is her best friend. Juliet can’t fit in any more worries!

But then she makes a remarkable discovery. Behind the wallpaper in her new bedroom, Juliet uncovers an old painting of a very special tree. Nana remembers it well: it’s the Worry Tree, and with the help of the Worry Tree animals, Juliet just might be able to solve some of life’s big problems.
The Worry Tree is a 2009 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
