hree Worrywarts grace the cover, all big eyes and anxious faces. Wombat, Weasel and Woodchuck decide to '
wander the world
' but they find so much to worry about, all beginning with '
What if ...
' and all involving a large number of "W" words.
magined hazards include wallflowers and wasps, waves and a walrus, a wolf and a whirlwind, an owl and a warthog. Good thing they brought the '
W volume of the Webster's Book of Words
' in Woodchuck's wheelbarrow, and the watermelon and wieners come in handy too.
is a wonderful exercise in imagination, with an imbedded message about the power of preparation in negating worry and dealing with life ... '
We won't be worrywarts!
' Both kids and parents will enjoy the absurdity of the adventure, along with expanding their "W" vocabulary.
