Me and My Fear

(2) K-3 This sensitive follow-up to The Journey describes the young daughter's apprehension as she adjusts to life in a new country and school. Her fear is astutely abstracted as a puffy, white, somewhat amorphous character, whose size fluctuates according to circumstances. The final pages depict a classroom full of children and their fears--who appear small, soft, and smiling, suggesting their presence is something to be understood and embraced, not overcome.
