Description

Now in paperback!

Sometimes Sophie worries -- not during the day when she is busy with family and friends, but at night when everything is calm and quiet. Her family all try to help, but somehow they just make her worries worse.

Until her mother thinks of a new approach ... that might just involve an elephant or two! But wait, don't think about purple elephants, whatever you do! Whimsical and humorous, this little girl's story of finding a way to ease her worry will resonate with children and parents everywhere.

Praise For Don't Think About Purple Elephants

"This is an enjoyable picture book to read together for children up to 8 or 9 years old, regardless of whether or not the child worries - but it would be a particularly good book to read with a child who is suffering from anxiety, it might just do the trick.”
