Silly Billy by Anthony Browne
"Billy worries about hats and shoe. He worries about clouds and rain and giant birds. Most of all, he worries about staying at other peoples houses. His Mum and Dad are trying to help, but still Billy worries... until it to his Grandma's shows him how to overcome his fears with the aid of his imagination and some tiny worry dolls."
What are Worry Dolls?
Worry Dolls are tiny dolls that children tell their worries to before placing them under their pillow at night. The Worry Dolls take the childrens's worries away while they sleep.
Why not have a go at making you own worry dolls at home.
What you need:
- small sticks or twigs
- wool, ribbon or thread
- felt tip pens
What to do:
- Break your sticks or twigs into small pieces (about 5cms)
- Wrap different colours of wool, ribbon or thread around your stick. Tie off the ends.
- Felt tip a face onto your doll.
