I didn’t love this the first time I read it but with each read after I’ve come to LOVE it in a big way. Michael Ian Black’s books are GREAT. Like his others, the greatness of I’m Worried is in the simplicity and the humor! It’s one of those books that kids enjoy just as much (if not more) than counselors, which isn’t always the case.

Key messages: Bad things might happen, you’ll be ok. You can’t prevent bad things from happening. It’s better to just live in the now. Worrying doesn’t help or change anything.
