Meet Wally, The Small Character Creating a Large Conversation-Helping Kids to Manage Mental Health

Updated: Nov 27, 2020

Why Worry Wally? is a small picture book with a big message. The Social Catalog spoke to Author Rick Foster who has written an extraordinary children’s book that normalises worries and anxieties for youngsters.



Using playful rhymes brought to life with evocative illustrations by Jackie Case, Rick has created a fun and engaging way of opening up conversations with kids, families and teachers, to talk about their worries and anxieties. What better way to tackle a delicate conversation like anxiety with your young one, sister, brother, niece or grandchild than tucked into bed with a picture book? Why Worry Wally? will nurture and nourish how our young ones respond to mental health whilst creating quality time with caregivers.
