Billy worries about hats and shoes. He worries about clouds and rain and giant birds. Most of all, he worries about staying at other people’s houses. His mum and dad try to help, but still Billy worries… until a visit to his grandma’s shows him how to overcome his fears with the aid of his imagination – and some tiny worry dolls.
In grade 2, students have been exploring picture story books written by well-known English author Anthony Browne. Students particularly enjoyed listening to ‘Silly Billy’ and responded to this story by making some very creative worry dolls of their own.
