Format: Hardcover
"Sometimes I'm Scared" is a good tool to help children ages 4-8 find constructive ways to deal with their fears. To enable children to cope with reasonable fears, several practical approaches are suggested and described, including the following:

"Understand your feelings.
Practice special breathing.
Picture nice things.
Pretend to be what scares you.
Think encouraging thoughts.
Change the way you think.
Take little steps. (p. 13)"

In addition to specific self help suggestions and techniques, "Sometimes I'm Scared" contains lots of well-depicted examples of fears that can be reduced by daylight, or understanding. The illustrations and the tone of the book encourage kids to make themselves comfortable with these ideas. An additional note to parents gives more specific helpful information about helping children deal with fears, and also explains when a child's circumstances may warrant further attention from a child psychologist or mental health professional.

"Sometimes I'm Scared" is an excellent self help book for children ages 4-8 and their parents. It is vivid, delightful, practical, and friendly to kids.

We bought this book for our oldest son, 4, that has recently experienced anxiety and is very scared about going to school. He responds well to books and we thought this would be good for him. However, I wish that I had read this before reading it to him because all I feel like it did was introduce all this new fears and things for him to be scared of.

This is one of the books requested in the newsletter from our local Relief Nursery needed as teaching tools for the Center's nursery program. The teacher who will be using them was thrilled to know they were going to be available to her. I think that says a lot about this book.
