Wemberly worried about everything, small things, big things and everything in between. She was mainly worried about starting school but when she did Wemberly meets a girl just like her, same worries, same clothes, both carry a doll and she starts to worry less. Teachers can teach students about worrying too much and how to overcome it. ( )

Prudencia no es un caso aislado. Esta blanca ratoncita se siente insegura, tiene miedo, no quiere relajarse y vive en constante preocupación. Muchos niños y niñas tienen periodos en el que experimentan altos niveles de estrés y angustia. Por eso, el adulto cuidador/a puede utilizar la Literatura como herramienta para iniciar un diálogo y encontrar el motivo de su angustia para así, con criterios adecuados, guiar al niño/a hacia su propia tranquilidad. Este libro contiene una historia que puede ser parecida a la del lector y a través de las páginas se puede descubrir que, al final, todo sale bien. Un libro positivo, con un final feliz y una familia que está detrás de Prudencia conteniéndola sin condiciones. ¡Hermoso!
Las ilustraciones no son del todo espectaculares, aunque acompañan la historia. ( )

Wemberly, a mouse, is very worrisome. She worries and worries, and usually it's for no good reason. Then Wemberly makes a friend!

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
