Book Reviews: PreS-Gr 2-Despite the child's ominous feelings about the concert, Zuppardi's pencil-drawn and brightly colored acrylic cartoon illustrations add an upbeat feeling to this simple story, which turns out well. VERDICT Zuppardi successfully describes a universal fear and provides a simple mind-set that even a preschooler can use to help overcome that fear.-Susan Scheps, formerly at Shaker Public Library, OH. Zappardi successfully describes a universal fear and provides a simple mind-set that even a preschooler can use to help overcome that fear. -School Library Journal. Ideal antidote for anxious kids facing their own Worries.-Kirkus Reviews. Performing in a first musical concert can be a nerve-wracking experience, as Zuppardi has artfully visualized...The acrylic-and-pencil illustrations truly transmit the amorphous nature of worrying, using convincing facial and body language, followed by huge happy smiles portraying a joyful resolution. -Booklist. Zuppardi's scribbly pencils and expressive bursts of paint readily capture the big, intense emotions Jack is feeling. -Publishers Weekly. A touching and reassuring story about the jitters associated with first experiences — and the satisfaction that comes with conquering your fears. Jack loves playing the trumpet, and for weeks he’s been looking forward to taking part in his first concert. But on the morning of the big day, Jack finds he has a Worry. And his Worry starts to grow. Even when Jack’s mother calls him for a special breakfast, even when he hides under the bed or runs around the yard, his Worry follows him. Suddenly, when it’s almost time to leave for the concert, Jack finds it’s all too much. For anyone who’s ever been afraid of failing at something new, this book offers just what’s needed to shrink a Worry down to size.
