Most Helpful Customer Reviews
My son loves this book and so do I. It presents a great lesson on being afraid. It is not just about being afraid of the dark, but about fears a lot of the animals have. The lesson is that it is okay to be afraid and offers a way to cope with your fear until you are not afraid anymore.
