It can be tough when you find yourself: Feeling Afraid

Beginning-to-Read – Big Feelings

by Mary Lindeen

#FeelingAfraid #NetGalley

This book is part of a series that focuses on feelings. I think that it does an excellent job of addressing its topic for its young readers.

Children will learn that everyone is afraid of something but that not everyone is afraid of the same things. They will discover some ways in which fear can be helpful and times when it may hold them back. Some (mindfulness) techniques for coping are offered, along with the suggestion of talking to a trusted adult and remembering that the feeling may not last.

At the end of the book there is a section that suggests ways to talk about fears.

The book is full of photographs. These will help children to relate to the text and also shows kids just like them who feel and cope with being afraid.

I recommend this one. It offers a good way to open a discussion withe the goal of helping a child to feel and cope better.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
