Thanks to the author and publisher, too, For my copy of this book - here's my honest review! Children's stories which are told in rhyme Are winners for me nearly every time. For this inspirational book it is very true Helping children face fears is what it will do. Fin is a boy who has worries to face But has learnt just how to put his fear in its place. Instead of fears he thinks of something brave you see Or something courageous to be. With lovely illustrations to which it is easy for youngsters to relate This rhyming read helps children face up to their fate. Pretending to be something brave helps them find How to go forward and leave their fears far behind. There are suggestions to help for parents, too. And the author's website has a pack of resources to do. This is a great and fun way to help children learn to act Like their brave - until that's a true fact! This is a lovely book At which I suggest teachers and parents look. It could help you children change the way They face their fears every day.
