This book is a wonderful choice for kids who are afraid of dogs, those who have other fears, or just those looking for a good read. I've used it in K-3 storytime and found it effective on many different levels. The story is engaging, the characters are believable, and the ending satisfies. In addition to dealing with the nature of courage.

Daniel isn't afraid of anything, but he doesn't like dogs. He comes home from school one day to find that his aunt's dog would be staying with them for a little while. Daniel runs to his room and stays there, saying that he's not afraid, he just doesn't like dogs. In the middle of the night, he gets up to go to the bathroom during a thunderstorm (which he's not afraid of), but goes to the bathroom to find the dog howling behind the toilet. Daniel jumps in the tub at first, but then realizes that the dog is just afraid of the storm. Daniel gets out of the tub and starts to pet the dog who calms down. He then takes her to his bed where they snuggle up and Daniel realizes that he does like dogs.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802780679, Hardcover)

Daniel is the bravest boy of all!

Daniel isn't afraid of spiders. He isn't afraid of snakes. He isn't even afraid of thunderstorms. And no matter what his sister says, he's certainly not afraid of dogs -- he just doesn't like them. But there's no avoiding them when he comes home and his mother is babysitting his aunt's dog.

Susanna Pitzer's humorous look into the nature of courage, fear, and friendship has a touching outcome for both the brave and the frail of heart, with expressive illustrations by Larry Day.

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:49:44 -0400)

Young Daniel must confront his fear of dogs when his mom dog sits his aunt's pet.
