OMG. I loved this! Kids need this to know its ok to be afraid of things, and that they shouldn’t be embarrassed, but instead should speak with someone to help them though it. And I love that she shows common real things kids are scared of, and not things that are meant to be scary like monsters. The illustrations are adorable, too!! I’ll be sharing this with my brothers for their grandchildren to read. Really great book!
I am extremely impressed with its message and delivery!! It’s so relevant. The book focuses on helping kids overcome their fears and emphasizes the message that fears are there, that it’s okay not to be okay, and that they can overcome their fears. The illustrations are bright and engaging, it caught my attention right away. The relatable situations was also helpful, and the rhymes and tone to guide kids towards a better understanding of their emotions and feelings was too. This book is a must-read for and kids parents looking for a resource to help their kids with emotional regulation and self-confidence.
A truly engaging and fun read that helps children to not only understand their feelings of fear but to accept and overcome them. The rhythm and rhymes are masterful. I love how the story is further developed through the delightful illustrations. A wonderfully encouraging story. This book will make a valuable addition to every classroom, library and bookshelf. I can’t recommend it enough. Wish I could give it more than 5 stars.

This book is done beautifully! I love the rhyme and illustrations! It teaches children that being scared is not a negative and gives suggestions for how to talk about it or attempt to move past those fears. It is a great resource for those not scared to learn about how their friends are feeling and how to help them. I loved it!
Wish I could give this book ten stars, it’s that good! Validating kid’s (sometimes scary, & overwhelming) emotions and why it’s perfectly normal to have them and how to navigate through them is a mindfulness treasure for every library, school, or home book shelf. The author nails it, pure and simple. Fantastic from cover-to-cover, HIGHLY recommended, and a well-deserved ten stars!

Experiencing fear is a normal part of being human, and it can be comforting to know that others share our fears. As someone who lives far from their family, I often worry about receiving upsetting news from them. I plan to revisit this book whenever I need to ease my anxieties and find solace.

This book is a great addition to the series Feeling All My Feelings. I especially like the parts of perspective-taking and acceptance. It’s a great starting point to teach young children to understand their fear and how to cope with it. Some helpful strategies are also provided! I would strongly recommend this book to other teachers and parents working with young children!

A book about fear, how to identify it, feel it and embrace it. In a society where we were taught to ignore bad feeling or stuff the bed feelings away, we start to forget that fear is actually a good feeling to have in order to keep us alert and safe!
