The young child in this book is outside playing hide and seek when, unfortunately, he gets stung by bees. Of course he is very upset. Max copes by deciding to only play inside. This seemingly keeps him safe but, naturally, does not leave him happy. Eventually Chris, Max’s brother, teaches him ABC worry free. A is for accept, B is for Breathe and C is for change. Each concept is demonstrated and explained.
This book comes from the National Center for Youth Issues. It is a good book to read with a child who has a fear or to read so that children know that fear is something that we all face if we take risks. There are helpful suggestions for adults at the end of the book.
I recommend this book which does a nice job of dealing with its chosen topic.
Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher.
