by Florence Parry Heide
No current Talk conversations about this book.
this book is a picture book that uses humor to help children relate to the fears being depicted by the illustrations, and view them in a more humorous manner. I think this a good book to use with children to help them accept their fears, because it is ok to be scared, and also to help them to cope with fear by viewing their fears from a funny perspective.

A book full of illustrations and very funny for everyone where it shows different situations in which we feel scary. Excellent for children to identify with those moments by seeing them in a less scary way.
I think this story is very deep, in the sense in which the reader is measuring and relating the fears that the author is expressing in the text. I think the message behind this book is acceptance. It shows me that it is ok to be afraid of certain things and that it is ok to embrace one's fears. I think it is a good story to introduce in a class set.
The illustrations are great. It shows things that can be scary in a not such scary way to make it easy to read to children.
This book is super clever! The illustrations are wild. I love how the scary things turn into something that kids can both confront and laugh at. The story states,"Knowing you're going to grow up to be a grown-up is scary." This lets kids know that they will indeed grow up and survive their childhood fears.
A list of scary things includes "roller skating down hill when you haven't learned how to stop, getting hugged by somebody you don't like, and finding out your best friend has a best friend who isn't you."
