A heartwarming and encouraging story told through beautiful 3D clay art illustrations.

One of the wisemen, Melchior, has the same dream night after night in which he is urged to follow a newly risen star. Worried about the perils he might encounter but certain he must make the trip, he embarks on the journey with his nonchalant and wise camel, Nubia. What follows is a rich and engaging tale full of interesting meetings along the path, that ultimately help him gain confidence in himself.

In these days when we all live with some sense of worry and anxiety, the book offers to children—and parents—a way to think about how we make the journey through life together and how we find calm and hope even when things feel uncertain.

Praise for The Worried Wiseman:"[A] tale full of heart, faith, and friendship. Truly stunning."—Julie Hedlund, author of Over, Bear! Under, Where?"Use this book during the holidays as an addition to your holiday staples, as an inspiration for discussions on worries and fears, or simply because your students (or your children) cherish the telling and re-telling of the gift of the Magi. Enjoy!"—Picture Book Depot"This is a story that both ignites the imagination and offers some comfort for those who are anxious."—Christine V. Hides, Bless Each One"An imaginative take on the biblical account that strays in details but stays true to the reason the magi followed the star—to find and worship God’s Son, Jesus."—Diane Stortz, author of I Am: The Names of God for Little Ones

Praise for previous books:"Eaddy takes an unhurried approach to storytelling, giving emotional depth to a familiar tale of displacement."—Publisher's Weekly"The book’s rollicking verses zip along with lively good cheer, abetted by delightful, energetic, colorful illustrations in which the White, wide-eyed protagonist is shown demonstrating how some of the costumes may be fashioned. A sweet Halloween teat."—Kirkus Starred Review"Perfect for one-on-one and small group sharing."—School Library Journal
