Fear of animals can be so debilitating for kids. In extreme form, it may even keep them from wanting to be outside.
Well, it is surely accepted wisdom that talking about fears is one proven way to diminish them. So, those who know a child who fears animals, may want to gently read this book with them.
The author does a good job of helping kids to move forward. Included in this title are many facts about animals. There are also suggestions about ways to cope with anxiety. In addition there is a fine section for adults at the end of the book.
This title offers much to the fearful child and their caregiver. It is a useful resource for therapists as well.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Jessica Kinglsey Publishers for this title. All opinions are my own.
