Winston the Worried Whale is a fun and captivating storytime resource that will help teachers approach the sensitive subject of worries with young children.

In this imaginatively illustrated picture book, loveable character Winston takes children on a journey through his worries, in turn helping them to think about how they can ease their own. The additional downloadable resources offer numerous opportunities to stimulate valuable discussion on worries.

Children will feel an instant connection to Winston’s friendly nature, especially when he shares his secret with them… that even though blue whales are the largest animal ever to have lived on earth, even though Winston is bigger than all the other sea creatures and they all think he is brave and not scared of anything, he does feel worried about a few things:

  • Winston worries about being able to swim fast like the rest of his family
  • He feels afraid of diving down into the deep dark ocean
  • … but mostly he worries about making friends

Children may not have exactly the same worries as a big blue whale, but they will be able to relate to feeling nervous or afraid, and I’m sure many will know how scary it can be to make new friends.

The storybook covers:

  • How it feels to have a worry
  • When to seek help from others
  • The importance of friendship
  • Recognising how we might lessen worries

Downloadable resources includes:

  • Selection of colouring sheets for young children highlighting thought-provoking questions about worries
  • Ideas for group activities with older children to encourage acknowledgment and support for worries within their peer group
