The life of a toddler can be full of frightening things: the
dark, the neighbor’s dog, and thunderstorms, just to name a few. As
children get older, they begin to feel braver around these everyday
events, but how do they build this newfound confidence? In this lyrical,
insightful picture book, an older sister explains to her younger sister
all the things she used to be afraid of, along with some tricks to
help, whether it’s a special blanket for bedtime or singing during a
storm. Now, big sister assures little sister, the fears that once felt
as big as a mountain feel as minuscule as a speck of dust.
This playful portrait of fear and bravery empowers young readers to
confront once-scary situations and, with charming illustrations and
die-cuts throughout, is also beautifully packaged.
