 About the book:

Get ready to meet Sohal. He worries about a lot of things - the dark, mutant sheep, not having any friends - you name it, he worries about it! So one night he draws his worries to make himself feel better - and somehow they look a lot less worrying once he's scribbled them down . . .

Described by The Guardian as “funny, sweet and very useful for opening conversations with anxious children”, The Worries: Sohal Finds a Friend is the first book in The Worries series, written and illustrated by Jion Sheibani. The Truth Pixie meets Inside Out, this timely and heartfelt story is aimed at children aged 5, and is perfect for helping them to gently work through their worries, so that they concentrate on having fun!

What to expect during the session:

Join author and illustrator, Jion Sheibani, for an inspiring and heartfelt digital event, including an exclusive reading, a sneak peek around her studio and a creative draw-along. There will be interactive games to play along to, which aim to open the conversation surrounding the worries children can feel, in an entertaining, fun and accessible format, plus there are activities to take away after the session is over.  All you need is a piece of paper and something to draw with! Jion will also answer some of your pupils’ questions, so don’t forget to send these in advance.
