Tommy is terrified of dogs. When he gets an invitation to a big birthday party at his neighbor’s house, his heart sinks—he can’t possibly go, the dog is enormous and scary! But instead of staying away, he and his mom hatch a step-by-step plan to face and overcome his fears in time to enjoy the party. This gentle introduction to the concept of exposure therapy for kids will help them deal with phobias. Includes a Note to Parents and Caregivers about how to support kids working through exposure therapy.

"Beneficial to families... A fear of dogs is no match for serviceable practicality."
