We all get scared sometimes: Scaredy Monster (Scaredy Monster Book 1) by Meika Hashimoto

This brightly illustrated book contains three stories about Scaredy Monster for young readers.  Poor Scaredy; he does not scare others but rather is scared of things himself.  For example, in the first story Scaredy is very worried about losing a tooth; he is so worried that he tries to keep it in with peanut butter, marshmallows and more.  Luckily Scaredy’s mother helps him through and he finds that losing a tooth is not so bad.

In Part Two Scaredy Monster gets his first two wheeler and after a scary experience does not want to ride any more.  Once again, Mom helps him to face his fears as he learns to ride his bike

In Part Three, Scaredy Monster goes on his first sleepover.  It is fun until it is not.  Yet again, Scaredy learns to cope with the support of the adults around him.

This is a great book for kids.  It takes their fears seriously while showing that they can cope.  Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
