A girl and her dog find ways to deal with her anxiety in this beautiful debut picture book

A little girl is convinced that her dog worries, just like her. With a whole day ahead of them, she’ll need to figure out how to soothe them both. She prepares snacks, first aid, and even a sword in case there are any monsters. But when nothing works to ease their worries, she’ll need to get creative.
Written by K.A. Reynolds, who includes helpful ways to ease anxiety, and beautifully illustrated Chloe Dominique, this sweet and necessary story is a warm hug for any child who’s ever felt anxious or nervous.
