Chasing Scaredy Away: No More Fraidy in the Dark, by Dr Qooz is a fun book that does a fantastic job presenting the concept of fear management to young children.
The story starts out with the main character, Zora, going to buy some honey from a local honey seller. Readers follow Zora to the honey seller who tells an interesting story about how much bears love honey. Although the seller does not intend to instill fear in Zora with his story, some aspects of the tale frighten her. Zora carries those fears with her, and they grow.
The author does a great job bringing the reader through Zora’s process of fear, understanding, and later coming into a confident and fearless state thanks to greater understanding of why she had been afraid in the first place. Dr. Qooz finishes the story with a clear lesson in conquering fear using the tools at our disposal.
This book is a touching story that children would fall in love with. Parents will have fun reading this to their children while enjoying the lively and colorful images in the book.
