About the Author
Julia Cook was born and raised in Salt Lake City Utah. While living in Utah, she became actively involved in teaching children how to ski. That experience led to a love of teaching in general. Julia now lives in Fremont, Nebraska and has a Masters degree in Elementary School Counseling. While serving as a guidance counselor, she often used childrens books to enhance her classroom lessons. Julia is now a nationally recognized award-winning childrens book author who has written more than a dozen books on behavior and health for children as well as several activity books for teachers. Her light, humorous approach keeps kids laughing while they're learning good behavior skills. The goal behind all of Julias books and efforts is to actively involve people into her fun and creative stories and teach them to become life-long problem solvers. Inspirations for her books come from working with children and carefully listening to parents, teachers and corporate leaders. Julias books have been referenced in such publications as Parents Magazine, The New Yorker, and babyzone.com. In her spare time, Julia enjoys spending time with her husband and family. In order to teach a child, you must enter their view of the world. - Julia Cook

That said, I DID like the concepts in the book, just not their execution. I feel strongly that a re-write that helps Wilma Jean recognize which worries are in her control (and address those) and then some tools to help her deal with the worries that are not rational and/or outside of her control would take this from a 2 star book to a 5 star book.
Children will quickly learn through Wilma Jean that the only thing they can't control is weather, for all of their other worries there is usually a solution.
Wilma Jean the Worry Machine should certainly find it's way onto your bookshelf if you're a Parent, School Counselor, Teacher, Social Worker, Psychologist, and/or Pediatrician.
