Unraveling Rose

Rose is a stuffed bunny who loves the little boy she lives with and all the fun they have together. They play in the park, paint pictures, read stories—until she discovers a loose thread dangling from her arm. Rose tries to ignore the little string, but no matter how hard she tries, she can’t stop thinking about it, pulling at it. When her arm unravels and the stuffing falls out, Rose can no longer do the things she loves with her little boy. Can Rose find a way to forget about the little loose thread? The story offers a great opportunity for parents and teachers to talk to children about how compulsive and obsessive thoughts can get in the way of enjoying life, and what to do about it. Therapist recommended.
