Book Review: Busy Dizzy by Orly Katz

Busy Dizzy (Inspirational bedtime story for kids ages 4-8)Busy Dizzy by Orly Katz
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This fun and friendly little book takes the idea of negative self-talk and puts it in kid friendly language, showing young children how to cope with fears and doubts in a positive way. I could see this book working very well in younger age classrooms or as a great read-aloud book for parents, to open some great dialogue with their children. The illustrations worked, and the rhyming content was straight forward, I especially liked how the text did not talk down to small children as many adults tend to do. As the sweet teacher Miss Young showed the children how to deal with the busy dizzies, by identifying them and telling them “you don’t belong here”, the author shows children some really great coping skills. At the end of the book there are coloring pages for children to identify their own busy dizzy. I would recommend Busy Dizzy to parents & teachers.
