Book Description

This practical guidebook, with a beautifully-illustrated storybook, enables teachers, parents and professionals to help children aged 4-12 connect with unresolved feelings affecting their behaviour.

This is a guidebook to help children who:

  • worry a lot or exhibit signs of ongoing anxiety
  • experience the world as an unsafe place
  • suffer from phobias, obsessions or nightmares
  • are scared to tell someone that they are scared
  • know a terrible loneliness
  • feel insignificant in a world of adult giants
  • feel defeated by life or need help in being assertive
  • feel so impotent that their only way to feel any potency is to be mute.

Teenie Weenie in a Too Big World tells a story for fearful children. One day Teenie Weenie finds himself in a screechy, scary place. The worse it gets, the smaller Teenie Weenie feels. Teenie Weenie feels terrified and desperately alone. But after a while, with a Wip Wop bird and his friend Hoggie, Teenie Weenie learns about the power of together. He comes to know how very different things look when it's an us not just a me. And so, whenever Teenie Weenie finds himself struggling alone with something too difficult or too frightening, he finds some together.
