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."
"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!Read more ›
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.
Another in the Todd Parr feelings books. With simple text and simple illustrations, Todd Parr talks about common fears children have and how to not be afraid.
If you like Todd Parr, you will love this new book.
