TITLE: I’m Worried
AUTHOR: Michael Ian Black
ILLUSTRATOR: Debbie Ridpath Ohi
PUBLISHER: Simon & Schuster, 2019
SYNOPSIS: “Potato is worried. About everything.
Because anything might happen.
When he tells his friends, he expects them to comfort him by saying that everything will be okay. Except they don’t. Because it might not be, and that’s okay too. Still, there’s one thing they can promise for sure: no matter what happens…they will always be by his side.”
WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THIS BOOK : Books don’t have to be long or tedious to make a lasting impression on a child. Michael Ian Black’s “I Am” series is a shining example of how a well written story with whimsical artwork by award-winning illustrator Debbie Ridpath Ohi can engage a young reader’s imagination while helping to teach a much needed coping skill. Book three, I’M WORRIED, allows children to explore their emotions in a safe, encouraging environment. This is especially important in our current world environment. I’M WORRIED is a MUST addition to any children’s library!
