“Before today, I was very afraid of dogs,” Lizzie told him.
The quiet old man replied, “Before today, I was very afraid of children.”

What’s to love:
In this book, a little girl struggles with and eventually overcomes her fear of dogs.
The illustrations are soft and simple; My youngest loved them.
Overcoming a fear may seem like a small thing..but it sure can feel big!
Where to find it:
We borrowed it from the Thompson Nicola Library System here in Kamloops:
