When Mom gets a serious illness, it takes family pet beagle, Mooshu, from his accustomed routines and beloved-pet status through unexpected and unwelcome sudden changes. He's bewildered when he gets less affection and has to wait longer for meals and walks, but finally the family finds a positive way to include Mooshu in the new normal of dealing with Mom's illness. His fear, loneliness and frustration fade as he enters the circle of compassion, comfort and closeness by Mom's side. Mooshu Worries is a picture book that speaks to young children ages 3 to 8 with a close family member who is very ill.
From a reader:
"Someone loaned me your book, Mooshu Worries, and I wanted you to know how powerful it has been in our lives. My sister seems to be in a perpetual state of worry and anxiety. She often communicates through characters and scripts from movies, books, cartoons and stuffed animals, and other people/animals' experiences. We have been able to use your book to encourage communication about fear and worry of the unexpected, unknown and the future. Thank you so very much for your invaluable contribution to our lives."
