If you have a child you worries about things, all sorts of things, then this delightful book may help. A story about Sophie who worries, especially at night, not during the day when she is at school learning and being with her friends,  nor when she is at home playing, but at night when all is calm and still. Although her family try to help her, it just makes everything worse, until one day her mother thinks of a new approach.


This book is filled with lovely illustrations that children will relate to and sure to enjoy looking at while reading of Sophie's predicament and then the solution to no more worrying, thanks to purple elephants....

Don't Think About Purple Elephants

by VSusa Whelan and Gwynneth Jones

Published by Exisle Publishing

ISBN 978192196699


'Don't Think About Purple Elephants is a story about a little 'night-time worrier'. For children (and adult) worriers, night time offers minimal to no distractions, so worries are free to roam. The story acknowledges the typical help offered and ends with a lovely, simple strategy that adds a bit of creative quirkiness to the bedtime routine.  Lovely story, beautiful illustrations!'

Lynn Jenkins, clinical psychologist and author of Lessons of a Lac, School Start and Best Start


"Don't Think About Purple Elephants is a beautiful children's book and a must have for every bookshelf.

Susan Whelan writes with a deep understanding of what it feels like to be a child who worries, highlighting how easily negative thoughts can fill a child's mind. Gwynneth Jones' beautiful illustrations are full of emotion and compassion, complementing the text perfectly.

Don't Think About Purple Elephants will resonate with all young children and be especially important for those who are little worriers." - Nicky Johnston, author and illustrator of Go Away, Mr Worrythoughts!
