A young girl faces her fears in this award-winning picture book from the author-illustrator of Alfie and How Do You Dance?
An ALA/ALSC Notable Children’s Book

Today is the perfect day for the zoo! But Little T is afraid to go. The only trouble is, she can’t remember what scared her at the zoo the last time. To help her remember, her mom, dad, and sister come up with an ingeniously creative solution: in a flurry of bubble wrap, umbrellas, water bottles, salad tongs, a mop, a vacuum cleaner, and much, much more, her family brings to life an astounding parade of zoo animals—in alphabetical order! Can you guess which animals the family is acting out? And can Little T stop feeling like such a “fraidyzoo”?

In this charming and witty picture book, award-winning author-illustrator Thyra Heder honors the bravery it takes to face your fears, and the loving people who help you do so.
