Noni Is Nervous
Written by Heather Hartt-Sussman
Illustrated by Geneviève Côté
Hardcover | 24 Pages | Ages 2-5
Noni is nervous about play-dates, and global warming, and most of all, about the first day of school. Her parents are worried too, and even her brother is a little wary. But Noni finds a friend, someone a little more outgoing than herself, and discovers that through friendship, she can belong and succeed in a world that once filled her with dread. The story is a universal one about the power of friendship and belonging, delightfully illustrated by award-winning illustrator Geneviève Côté.

I use deep breathing
When I’m nervous, I close my eyes and think of things that calm me down. Music helps too. 🙂
When I am nervous, I go for a walk along the lake. Just being outside and looking at other things makes me happy and calm 🙂
I go to the beach and walk 🙂
When I am nervous sometimes I like to do simple math in my head like the times tables.
When I am nervous, mainly before a workshop, I hold onto the prepared cue cards I keep in my pocket just in case. I have yet to need the cards when presenting, but they certainly make me feel better…
I sing my favourite songs… really loudly! 😀 It helps me feel happier.

I generally listen to music I like to try and distract myself.
I go through the bones in the body in my head (I’m a nurse). This usually helps to distract me or distance me from the problem
