About Ruby’s Worry, by Tom Percival
Ruby loves being Ruby. Until, one day, she finds a worry. At first it's not such a big worry, and that's all right, but then it starts to grow. It gets bigger and bigger every day and it makes Ruby sad. How can Ruby get rid of it and feel like herself again?

A perceptive and poignant story that is a must-have for all children's bookshelves. From Tom Percival's bestselling Big Bright Feelings series, this is the perfect book for discussing childhood worries and anxieties, no matter how big or small they may be.

Ruby’s Worry craft activities
To aid discussion with young children about the story, Bloomsbury has prepared two craft activities to get young children thinking about the context of the story.

The Ruby’s Worry activity pack can be downloaded and printed for use via the following link.
