“Throughout the large, sturdy, die-cut pages, a little girl talks about her fears and how she copes with them. . . . Thoroughly entertaining.” —Kirkus Reviews
An empowering exploration of fears and how to overcome them, from the bestselling creators of the New York Times bestseller In My Heart. Part of the Growing Hearts series!
The life of a child can be full of frightening things: the dark, the neighbor’s dog, and thunderstorms, just to name a few. As children get older, they begin to feel braver around these everyday events, but how do they build that newfound confidence?
In this lyrical, insightful picture book, an older sister explains to her younger sister all the things she used to be afraid of, along with some tricks to help deal with that fear, whether it’s a special blanket for bedtime or singing during a storm. Now, big sister assures little sister, the fears that once felt as big as a mountain feel as minuscule as a speck of dust.
With charming illustrations and die-cuts throughout, this playful portrait of fear and bravery empowers young readers to confront scary situations.
The Growing Hearts series celebrates the milestones of a toddler’s emotional development, from conquering fears and expressing feelings to welcoming a new sibling.
