"Silly Billy" - Anthony Browne's lastest book is fabulous.

'Billy was a worrier - he worried about everything, until his Grandma introduced him to worry dolls...'

Here's a wonderful response to this story from a yr 1&2 class. The teacher read the story to the class and then included the activity in Discovery Time the next day. She set up a table with wooden pegs (from the $2 shop), PVA glue and scraps of fabric/wool and the children set to with very little adult assistance.

These are some of the worry dolls they made.
