Me and My Fear
by Francesca Sanna
Flying Eye Books, 2018
A young girl who recently moved to a new home discusses her friend “fear.” Fear has always looked after her and kept her safe, until she moved to a new country. There fear started to grow and grow and wouldn’t even let her go outside to explore her more neighborhood, even when she wanted to. Fear really didn’t like going to school and wouldn’t let the girl play with others. When a young boy offer to play, for the second time, the girl does play with the boy and fear begins to shrink.
Cleverly written story that reframes the notion of fear, making it a friend of a young child, something to protect her. Great introduction to fear and its benefits.
