Over the past several years I have run across, and indeed read to children, quite a number of books by Todd Parr. I am not sure how many there have been but I do know that I have yet to find one that did not completely delight me. I have never had a kid complain about them either. This work; "The I'm Not Scared Book," is no exception. This author, who is also the artist, can do more with simply shapes and a limited number of colors than I have ever seen before. Also, as with his other books, his sensitivity and ability to address problems and concerns of the sort of things that children often need help with is most insightful, informative and helpful. It is as if Parr remembers absolutely what it was like to be a small child.

In this particular work, the author has addressed common fears that all young people face from time to time...from the real and relatively important, to those that may seem trifle to we adults, but are very paramount in a child's mind. The book is designed so that on one page a fear is voiced, and on the opposite page the solution to that fear or what makes that fear go away is noted and discussed.

"Sometimes I'm scared when my family argues."

"I'm not scared when we hug and say I'm Sorry."

Or...

"Sometimes I'm scared of what's under my bed." (Hmmm, I am a bit fearful of that myself at times.)

"I'm not scared once I clean everything out and see all my favorite toys."

The last page of the book makes a statement: "Sometimes we are scared of things because we don't understand them." This, when you think about it, is more or less the sum of most fears.

And then there is the art work! My goodness!

This book goes beyond the other "fear/being afraid' books that are out there. The fear is stated and the next page shows a non-scary similar situation. Almost like a Scary/Not Scary format. It helps kids see solutions and promotes thinking skills. There are several themes this could be used for: going to school, Halloween, underwear....I will definitely use this book in my preschool classroom!

Format: Hardcover
A fantastic, brightly illustrated book that cheerfully identifies a variety of fears children have, while also showing them how they can over come them. Todd Parr's simplistic words make this a story that's easy to understand for really young readers, and makes it easy for beginning readers to read. It's a fabulous story for parents to read to their kids.

I loved the way Todd told only told the story, but his illustrations are great. My kids really enjoyed this book. They connected with some of the fears that are mentioned in the story and laughed at some of the ways they are able to over come them. For example, one of the pages illustrates how scary it can be to go underwear shopping and the neighboring page illustrates it's not scary when you put the underwear on your head. Every time I read this page, non stop laughing ensues.

I love Todd's message at the end of the book where he says, "Sometimes we are scared of things because we don't understand them. When you are afraid tell someone why and maybe you won't be scared anymore."

I highly recommend picking this book up. It's one that can be used in Kindergarten & 1st grade classrooms as well as preschool and at home. I'm looking forward to reading more of Todd's books.

Huge Todd Parr fan over here! He helps us not take it all so seriously. The kids go ga ga over the illustrations and his humorous lines he sneaks in. Like this one....Sometimes I'm scared to go shopping for new underwear. I'm not scared when I wear them on my head. How funny and random is that?! Of course the kids laugh and laugh. If I'm going to tackle a feeling like being scared it's nice to be able to pull a Todd Parr book of my shelf. I like how each scared statement he writes has a positive solution accompanying it. Be prepared to have your kids ask you to read this one over and over. Ask them to come up with a scared feeling, but don't forget to have them also add in the positive solution to the fear. Good stuff!

My 4 year old boy/girl twins love this book. Simple and short, it conveys the fact that we all get scared and its okay. In fact that is the message I have found in all of his books so far. Definitely recommend.
