This work features flaps and reliefs throughout plus "tickets" to cut out and remove for help with specific fears. Most of us, no matter what race or culture, fear something at some time. This book for small children deals with their concerns - from fear of spiders, bugs and the dark, to fear of trying new things, staying overnight, being different, being bullied - and many more. The simple pops and flaps make the book fun as well as comforting, and the tickets at the end offer some helpful suggestions for confronting your fears. All of this in a multicultural context. There are over 1 million copies of the other 6 titles in this series in print around the world - in 20 different languages!
