This Will Pass
Bushel & Peck Books
A charming reminder for kids that even the worst things don't last forever.
It's time for little Crue's first big adventure with his Great Uncle Ollie, but he can't help but worry: What if the boat breaks? Or an octopus swallows them in one gulp? Or a family of whales takes over the boat? It seems the worries will follow him around forever until Great Uncle Ollie squeezes his hand and shares his secret mantra: Keep calm, it will pass. Through storms . . . Keep calm, it will pass . . . past sharks . . . Keep calm, it will pass . . . even through a pirate attack . . . Keep calm, it will pass . . . Great Uncle Ollie's mantra keeps Crue afloat—until it's time for a solo journey of his own.
For kids who worry or stress over life's troubles, This Will Pass is a welcome lesson in mindful patience.
