When I saw this book, it attracted me right away. Having a grandchild with severe anxiety, I though this book would be a good one. It is a beautifully illustrated book about being the new child in school and the community, and overcoming your fears. This book focuses on a girl who moved to a new country, but it fits for any child who has moved to a new school. I loved the depiction of the girl's fear and how it increased in size as her fear increased. This is a book that would be beneficial to any child with the fear of fitting in to a new group or place. The ending is wonderful where she realizes that the other children all have different fears and they begin to play together. My only confusion with this book is what age level will understand the message. Obviously the message of being kind, welcoming and playing together is geared to anyone, but even though my grandson could tell me the message that everyone is afraid of something, he is too young to internalize that yet. This would be a good book to keep on my bookshelf to read him again when he is older and more able to utilize and understand the anxiety message. The publisher, Flying Eye Books, generously provided me with a copy of this book to read. The rating, ideas and opinions are my own.… (more)
