"Corinne’s vision of supporting children with their big emotions is realized in this beautifully illustrated children’s book. Children who have a difficult time managing their emotions often feel alone, misunderstood, different, out of sorts or isolated. Corinne’s eepworms help these children feel safe by assuring them that they have someone (or something!) that will stick with them through thick and thin. What a comfort to little souls in distress!”

"It seems like the book speaks to you. As a child psychologist, I feel this book is so relevant to all children who I work with who have their own anxieties. It is a book that empowers one to look for ways to conquer their fears, anxieties and the very many irrational thoughts that can sometimes overpower the young minds. I must add that the book is as much relevant for adults as it is for children. It gives adults the courage to find their own way to deal with their challenges. At least that is what it did to me. It touches your heart. I would definitely recommend it for everybody out there."

"We bought Corinne’s beautiful book and eepworm himself after our 5-year-old daughter saw them at church. Eepworm is by her side almost 24/7 now; she cuddles and talks to him, sleeps and eats with him, and makes him reflect her every emotion. She has memorized the book and recites it at will, and Eepworm makes regular appearances at her kindergarten show-and-tell. Her endorsement? 'There is nobody who can love Eepworm better than me!' The toy is sturdy, fun, soft, and easily transported. We are so grateful to Corinne and her family for sharing their journey and Eepworm with ours!"
Every parent or teacher can relate to a fun time with children turning sour when the fun needs to end. Corinne Goyette's book lets a child enter into the adorable Eepworm's super exciting day of fun with a friend, only to have strong negative emotions almost ruin the day! Helpful tips within the book allow your child or student to stop, take a break and handle emotions successfully. A must have on any teacher, parent or school counselor's shelf."

What a lovely find this was! The story is simple and sweet. It was a wonderful way to open up a conversation with my daughter, who also has difficulty with the size and scope of her emotions when it comes time for the fun to end. We used her eepworm to talk about feelings and how they can feel overwhelming, and to demonstrate how easy it is to lash out when we don’t know what else to do. It led to an interesting conversation – I doubt all of our challenges with ending playdates and big emotions are resolved, obviously, but it was a great start!”
