Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Billie Loving
A young bear illustrates the fears that young children may have. For example, he is scared when he hears a loud noise or has a bad dream. Of course, he is scared when his mother goes away. Sometimes he does not know why he is scared, but he knows that scared is a cold, tight feeling that makes him cry and want to hide. But he knows how to get rid of the feeling. Number one is having someone to hold him. He needs to talk about what scares him. He needs to cuddle with someone. Then he lists some things he knows he should not do. He knows that when his mother goes away, she is coming back. That is probably his biggest consolation. All the suggestions for doing away with fear are good ones for parents and teachers to discuss with children. (Way I Feel) Fiction, Highly Recommended. Grades Preschool-3. Selected as a Best Children's Books of the Year, 2003 by the Bank Street College of Education, this book was recently reissued as a board book. Reviewer: Billie Loving
From the Publisher

"The short, well-reasoned narrative, child-centered point of view, and practical suggestions make this a good choice for preschoolers."
