Julia will be reading Anxious Charlie to the Rescue. Why this book? Julia wants kids to understand that we all get stressed and nervous and that many of us have been experiencing this during the last few months. She feels that taking a deep breath is a great way to cope with anxiety. After Julia reads the story she will be leading the group in a dog drawing tutorial, so have a pen and paper ready!
A friend in need causes an anxious pup to confront his fear of change in this thoughtful and encouraging tale.
Charlie follows the same routine every day: he hops out of bed in the morning, walks the same route to the market, and lines up his stuffed animals just so in the evening. If anything is slightly different, Charlie worries that something bad might happen.
But when friends call one morning asking for Charlie’s help, he forgets to follow his usual routine. Will something bad happen, as Charlie fears? Or will he learn that change can be good? In this touching story by Terry Milne, readers will fall in love with the nervous little dog named Charlie and his ability to overcome his fear of change.
