This is a cute book about a boy who is afraid of most everything. His best friend, his dog, helps him to see that most of what he is afraid of hasn’t happened or can’t happen. He learns that when you “turn on the light” that is understand what is real and what isn’t – the fear goes away. I like this for a read-aloud for preschoolers and as a first reader for K-2.
Many children are afraid of things that they just really don’t know about, like witches and trolls and things in the dark. This book helps them understand that our mind makes us think things are worse than they are.
