Lucy is afraid of dogs, Josh doesn't like to go in the pool, Dan doesn't want the nurse to touch his bruised knee, and Ben is afraid to go on stage in front of people. Follow along as these friends learn that when something scares them, they can take a deep breath and feel brave enough to get through their ordeals.

Part of the Our Emotions and Behavior series, this cheerful and reassuring story shows that positive coping skills can help kids deal with being afraid, and children can be brave even when things seem scary. The book also includes a two-page series of pictures that invites kids to tell a story in their own words. A special section for adults suggests discussion questions and ideas for guiding children to talk about their feelings. Ideal for home and K - 3 classroom settings.

"This book demonstrates that even regular tasks can cause fear, which can be assuaged using deep breathing and positive thinking. It can also be a great tool to teach children how to help their own friends who are overwhelmed by fear or anxiety". -- The Children's Book Review
