Who Feels Scared?
Everyone is scared of something, and what scares one person might be enjoyed by another. Thats the message delivered by this gentle yet spirited entry in the Our Emotions and Behavior series. Buddies Kevin and Ravi are spending the night at their friend Jacks house, and, as with all sleepovers, startling things seem to wait behind each corner. But that lions roar is really just the dog barking, and that thump in the closet just a toy. In a nice twist, Jacks sister drops by to illustrate that older people get scared, tooshe was afraid of flying until she tried listening to music on the plane. Guicciardinis cartoon illustrations give the lesson learning a zany edge, especially when the kids are imagining nonexistent monsters. Graves ends her book with a wordless two-page story of Toms first night away from home, inviting parents and teachers to have kids tell Toms story based on what they learned from Kevin and Ravi. Not a bad book to have on hand for anxious little ones stretching their wings.
