Introducing Wallop of Worries

Updated: Sep 23, 2023

Alyssa Caparaso Hurley's first children's book, Wallop of Worries is set to be released on September 1, 2023. It is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Wallop of Worries is a picture book for young children (3 to 8 years old) to help them when they feel anxious. Anxiety can be especially tricky and many kids have trouble explaining what they experience simply because they lack the vocabulary to do so.

This story breaks down the certain ways anxiety can manifest in an easy to identify way for children to understand. It is written in a soothing and rhythmic pattern that can be used as part of a calming ritual. Finally, it empowers kids by giving them tricks and tools they can use to help squelch those wallops of worries right in their tracks.

Alyssa Caparaso Hurley has been walloped by worries for as long as she can remember. Worries aside, she's intrepidly traveled the world despite being frequently stuck in elevators, encountering frightening beasts (she does not like snakes), and making disastrous choices on where to consume sushi. She lives with her family in Connecticut where she loves to write.
