Book Review/Giveaway: Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns about Courage. Ends March 22nd.
Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns about Courage by Howard Binkow
About the Book: This book explains to 4-8 year olds in a simple playful way how to work with fear issues.
My Review: For the past few weeks Howard have been afraid of the dark, make believe monsters under his bed, loud noises, high places and scared of his first day at his new school that he decided not to leave his room ever again.
But while looking out of his window one day he saw a baby bird looking in. It was the most important moment of that’s bird’s life. It’s his first day of learning how to fly. But Howard was worried that the bird would fall. But he learnt an important message that day when the bird told him “if you’re not afraid, you can’t be BRAVE.” He learnt that even birds and superheroes are afraid but that doesn’t stop them from doing what they do.
For the first time Howard wasn’t afraid of the dark or the make believe monsters under his bed. He learnt it was okay to be afraid and slept well that night. He woke up the next day looking forward to attending school.
Children can relate to Howard’s fears. Children will learn it is normal and healthy to feel fear and that fear protect them from danger. The illustration by Jeremy Norton helps tell the story. I highly recommend this book for every household with children and for classroom teaching.
