This story is adorable! It's about a little boy who is afraid of dogs, but during a thunderstorm sees that the family dog is scared so he comforts the dog and realizes that he is not longer afraid. Would be a great read for a preschool class.

The book depicts a story of a boy who is scared of dogs, but is forced to overcome his fear when his mother agrees to look after one. I was first left feeling dissatisfied after having read the book because the author had not provided the reason for why Daniel, the main character, was afraid of dogs. I then learned to appreciate the story as I realized the author’s intention to reach a wide variety of readers. Not Afraid of Dogs by Susanna Pitzer encourages children to face their fears and overcome them by portraying a story of how a boy completed a similar mission. However, it left me questioning its effectiveness in doing so, which is why I would rate this a mediocre read. Despite all of this, I did appreciate the illustrations; I felt that the illustrations and text went hand-in-hand in delivering the story, especially on the cover page. ( )

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 Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:19:05 -0400)

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