Do your what-ifs have you worried? 


New to the neighborhood, little Willow has some big “what-if” worries. What if the kids don’t like me? What if my new bedroom is scary? Thankfully, Grandma is ready with a plate of cookies and some wise words about how Willow can name her “worry birds” and give them to God.
Authors Dr. Josh and Christi Straub know that today’s children have a lot of real “what-ifs”—about diseases and disasters, friendships and failures, and all-things-growing-up. Willow’s story offers practical lessons to help worry birds fly away. 


A note from Dr. Josh + Christi Straub

Our kids are growing up in a very different world than we did. We wanted to put a tool in parents’ and caregivers’ hands to make talking about worry normal in your home, classroom, church, or wherever you serve kids and families.

In conceptualizing “What do I do with Worry?” and talking to our kids about their own worries, it became apparent how every worry we talked about started with the words “what if.”

In writing a children’s book, we want kids to pick up on concepts in a way that’s easy to understand. Worry can feel so subjective. It’s a feeling. It’s not easy talking about in a tangible way. But the words “what if” really began to help us in getting our own kids to talk about their worries.
