Do you worry about it? Ignore it? Do you run and hide from it?
This is the story of a persistent problem and the child who isn't so sure what to make of it. The longer the problem is avoided, the bigger it seems to get. But when the child finally musters up the courage to face it, the problem turns out to be something quite different than it appeared.
This is a story for anyone, at any age, who has ever had a problem that they wished would go away. It's a story to inspire you to look closely at that problem and to find out why it's here. Because you might discover something amazing about your problem… and yourself.
What are problems for? They challenge us, shape us, push us, and help us to discover just how strong and brave and capable we really are. Even though we don't always want them, problems have a way of bringing unexpected gifts.
So, what will you do with your problem? Now that's up to you."

This is quite a special book. It reminds me a little of the Give Tree except different theme. I appreciate the delicate way in which the author approaches and executes the topic in a appropriate manner for young children. The art works is done in a smart manner- no color except when liberation is found
My 7 year old granddaughter enjoyed reading this book and liked the advice she got from reading the book. Thinking of buying the other books from this author.
To my delight, What Do You Do With A Problem? is one of those special books that, I believe, has just as much meaning for adults as it does for kids. The book tells the story of a young boy who has a problem that just won’t go away – not through wishing, not through ignoring it, and not through avoiding it. In fact, not only would the problem not go away, but the boy finds that the more he worries about it, the bigger the problem becomes. Does that sound familiar to anyone else because, it sure rang true for me! This book teaches a wonderful message to kids about facing their problems and worries head on and also serves as a gentle reminder for adults – like me! – who struggle with worrying sometimes. The book is beautifully illustrated, showing the boy fighting his way through a rough storm, only to come out on the other side to a lighter, brighter, problem-free sky. I loved this book! I hope you will check it out and share it with the kiddos and adults in your life. Read full review: KaitsBookshelf.com
