The Wolf and the Baby Dragon by Avril McDonald

Part of The five Feel Brave series of books which help children deal with: confidence issues; change, loss and grief; managing anxiety and fears; and bullying. When Wolfgang and his friends learn about a cave where a baby dragon has hatched in a nest they quickly run off to find it. But sadly Wolfgang gets left behind. His bag is full of heavy worries that are making him slow and he just can't let go of them. When Wolfgang trips and falls, Spider shows him how to take a rest from his worries for a while and that if he can share them, they will be easier to manage. Suitable for children aged 4-7 years.
