Indy and I just read this twice! He asked! We purchased this book at Pre School during the week as part of a Book Week promotion. Indy chose it, but I thought it was a little complex for him. Turns out I was wrong, and he loved it. He listened, joined in, learned some things and repeated his understanding afterwards and also during the second read.

Walter is a worrier (maybe I am too!) and he lives in Woollybottom. This of course, provided some bum wiggling and raucous laughter and silliness fro

Very British, with mixed capitals and cozy villages and hard work for success.

Walter and the No-Need-to Worry Suit is a brilliant picture book that is full of fun, humour and has a wonderful message for little ones! Rachel Bright's illustrations are superb, they stand out from the crowd and are big, bright, bold, colourful and quirky! Little people won't know what to look at first as each page is jam packed with wonderfully attractive things.The storyline is great, it is perfectly paced and is a good length. We are introduced to an amazing set of brand new characters and ...more

SUMMARY: Walter is a big worrier. In fact he is the biggest worrier in Woolybottom. A competitive sports day is coming up and Walter is worried about the events he is picked for. He thinks of all the things that could go wrong. This makes him not want to go. His friends get together to create Walter a No-Need-To-Worry-Suit. The only problem is, he can't move very well in it. He begins the competition, but has trouble because of the suit. Finally, Walter knows exactly what to do.

This story has a good message about friendship and that friends can help you with your worries, but I thought the book was simply "ok" because I felt as though there was not a lot of detail to the story. There was some imagination, but each imaginative idea only lasted one page. I could see this book being a decent one for teaching students how to make predictions because there were three pages where Walter shares his worry and the page ends with "what if.." The teacher could stop and have stude ...more

Walter and Winnie both live in the town of Woollybottom, but they're very different. Winnie is happy-go-lucky, but Walter worries about everything. When Walter finds himself nominated for three events in the sports fun day, he goes into a panic. What if his trousers come off or a big mouse stamps on his house? Winnie and friends come to the rescue by making him a no-need-to-worry suit, but will it do the trick?

This is a cute, humorous story with a good message about getting a little help from yo

We watched this book being read on the kids show Bookaboo. Both myself, 3 year old son, and partner thoroughly enjoyed it.

It is about Walter who worries about EVERYTHING. Eventually he learns to over come his worries and not let them hold him back.

I loved the tall take that is woven by Walters fears. Which is built on as the story progresses.

A really good message for kids and a thoroughly enjoyable book.

Walter is the consummate worrier. He worries cover the real and imagined perils of an otherwise lucky donkey. His best friend Winnie devises an ingenious way to help Walter solve his worry problems. Thus the No-Need-to-Worry suit is born. While the suit does help Walter feel safe, it also acts as a barrier to fun he might be having if he could only relax. This is a great book for discussing worry and it's effect on the lives of children.

I liked the story about how friends come together to help an anxious friend in need, and help him conquer his fears. I liked that the friends were understanding and helping out. The witting style was nice, it flowed and I believe most children could understand and appreciate what was going on in the story.

decent book for talking to kids about anxiety and for making predictions. I wish the author hadn't explicitly stated the lesson at the end; always better to let readers figure it out on their own.

Rachel is a writer of words, drawer of pictures and champion of silver linings. She exhibits widely, writes tirelessly and frequently creates slightly unhinged characters.

Her written work includes children’s stories and poems, clever advertising copy and lots of other stuff besides. Her illustrative work is a smorgasboard of giant, hand-printed poems, mind-bogglingly detailed gouache illustrations
