Review: I Am (Not) Scared by Anna Kang +GIVEAWAY

Title: I Am (Not) Scared
Author: Anna Kang
Illustrations: Christopher Weyant

Two fuzzy friends go to an amusement park. They try to convince each other that there are much scarier things than the roller coaster. Hairy spiders! Aliens! Fried ants! They soon discover that sometimes being scared isn’t as “scary” as they thought. With expressive illustrations and simple text, this giggle-inducing tale about (not) being scared features the endearing characters from the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award winner You Are (Not) Small.

I absolutely adored You Are (Not) Small, so I hoped this one would be as cute.  It definitely is!  So many little ones could relate to this because being scared of something in some way is almost a daily occurrence! So here's an adorable little book that can help them see that things aren't always as scary as they seem, and that when you have a good friend they are even less scary.  I will for sure be sharing this book with my kindergartners and doing some activity with being scared - or not.  If I was still teaching 7th grader I would for sure use it with them as well!
