Description

Anxiety. It's tough. It's tough for kids. It's tough to parent. That deep-rooted fear of what might happen, the atmosphere of self-doubt, the attack of fear: What if something bad happens? What if I don't know? What if they laugh? Or if i cry? But...what if something good happens? What if you laugh? And you make a friend?

What If? Is a humour-filled, edgy, tender picture book that portrays what it feels like to have anxiety and responds to it with the potential of whimsy and joy. Doretta Groenendyk's new book What if? takes the young, worried child to journey through layered images of panic and into the delight of possibility.
