I especially like the note at the end for parents. I wish my parents had done me the courtesy of reading it and understanding the importance of self-esteem in children. Who knows that kind of person I might have been if someone had taught me to be less scared.

I just bought this book and 3 others like it. I really like how they explain to my son about what it means to be scared, sad, angry, and happy. Then it talks about how to deal with these feelings and that it's okay to feel this way sometimes. It does so without being to complicated.

Another excellent conversation starter for young children to discuss their fears: what it feels like to be afraid, what makes us afraid, and oh joy--the fact that everyone is afraid sometimes, it's normal and it's OK to admit it. Some people are afraid of things that other people find funny, or just don't bother them--but those same "brave" folks have their own fears even if they hide them. Fear is a positive thing, as it stops us doing stupid things that could get us or others hurt, too. The ...more

Picture- The bunny in this book tells us what he is scared of and what he does to help him when he is scared.

Ditto, as my responses before in this series.

This was certainly an emotion I knew well as a child...and know well today. These days, I'm afraid of things on a much wider scale (and less manageable) than as a kid, but we all need a bit of comforting now and then.

This series is great. Indy is 4 and asks for them (when it's a good day!) and today he asked for the 'sharing one'. I couldn't find it but I found this one. I like the very simple themes and vocabulary for Indy as he's not a 'sitter' when reading.

It's okay to feel scared. It can help us get away from danger and make us yell out for H E L P!!!

A shame in this instance today though, that he ended up doing roley poleys on my bed instead of listening to the story. Grrr!

I picked this book up because my son has been having bad dreams lately and I thought it would help him get through it. Luckily I read it before I shared it with him because the illustrations are very dark and frightening! If he didn't have bad dreams before reading this book, I was sure he would after! One page shows little scared bunny in bed and a shadow of a large frightening looking man/monster watching him sleep with glowing eyes.... terrifying! When it showed what it actually was with the ...more

Children I've used it with during sessions have responded well. Many particularly like the texture and the suggestions. I refer back to it to prompt ex/ "remember what the bunny tried when he was feeling scared?"

تصوير جيد للأحاسيس والأفعال التي تنتابنا حين نشعر بالخوف.
تقريب لمعنى صعب وتوضيحه بطريقة جداً رائعة للأطفال.
