Wimberly is worried all the time about everything that could possibly happen. This book would be great in a counselor's office or used as a tool to teach empathy to young kids. A very sweet tale about a cute, friendly, and misunderstood mouse. ( )

Wemberly is a shy white and gray mouse who always worried. She worried about spilling her juice, shrinking in the bathtub, even about snakes in the radiator. She worried morning, noon, and night. The thing Wemberly worried about the most was her first day of school. But when she meets a girl at school named Jewel who carries the same worn doll as she does, the two becomes friends. After Wemberly finds Jewel, she becomes a lot less worried and enjoys school. ( )

Wemberly worries about everything, even after her mom and dad reassure her there's nothing to be worried about. Her worrying gets in the way of her experiencing being a child. After going to school, she meets a friend and her worries go away. For ages 3-5. ( )

Wemberly worried about everything every day of the week. She worried about her parents, a tree falling on her house, a crack in the living room, the noise the radiator made, the jungle gym, her doll Petal and school. When school came she was worried about her appearance, her teacher, kids making fun of her and she worried about no one else bring a doll to school like she was. But to her surprise when she went to school their was another girl named Jewel that also carried a doll named Nibblet. Jewel and Wemberly became bestfriends and guess what Wemberly was not worried anymore.
This is a good fantasy book because it relate how being worried is normal and sometime its can be silly to worry so much. The character is a mouse which is given human like qualities which help the younger children be engaged more but also helps them relate to how the mouse is feeling. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0688170277, Hardcover)

Wemberly the mouse worries about everything: big things, like whether her parents might disappear in the middle of the night; little things, like whether she'll spill grape juice on her toy rabbit, Petal; and things in between, like whether she might shrink in the bathtub. What she is more worried about than anything else, however, is her first day at the New Morning Nursery School: "What if no one else has spots? What if no one else wears stripes? What if no one else brings a doll? What if the teacher is mean? What if the room smells bad?" Happily, Miss Peachum introduces her to a kindred spirit right away. Jewel doesn't have spots, but she is wearing stripes and holding a doll. As Wemberly plays with her new friend, she still worries, but no more than usual. ("And sometimes even less.")

Kevin Henkes, well-loved creator of the award-winning Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse, gets to the heart of a child's feelings like no one else can. Young worrywarts (and their parents) will see themselves in Wemberly, and be relieved that she, too, worries about playground equipment ("Too rusty. Too loose. Too high."), sure-to-be-inhabited cracks in the wall, whether she will be the only butterfly in the Halloween parade, and, of course, whether school will be dreadful in every way. Henkes's Lilly-style illustrations are sweet, expressive, and loaded with funny, inventive details that invite close perusal with every reading. (Wemberly's roller-blading grandma, for example, is wearing a T-shirt that says "Go with the flow.") We're not worried about whether this book will become a classic--it will! (Ages 4 to 8) --Karin Snelson
