A little squirrel announces that he was once very, very, scared and finds out that he is not alone. Lots of little animals went through scary experiences, but they react in different ways. Turtle hides and gets a tummy ache, monkey clings, dog barks, and elephant doesn’t like to talk about it. They need help, and they get help from grown-ups who help them feel safe and learn ways to cope with difficult feelings. This story was written to help children and grown-ups understand how stress can affect children and ways to help them. 

Industry Reviews

"This wonderful book is unique in its sensitive portrayal of how we respond to fear and how supportive relationships can help. Children of all ages will relate to the beautiful words and expressive pictures. The compelling story offers children and the adults that care for them the perfect medium to explore the universal feeling of being afraid and the gift of creating safety together." Alicia F. Lieberman, Ph.D., Irving B. Harris Endowed Chair of Infant Mental Health, Professor, UCSF Department of Psychiatry. Author: Emotional Life of the Toddler, Don't Hit My Mommy, Psychotherapy with Infants and Young Childrenâ

"This beautifully illustrated book will undoubtedly help children to find the presence of mind necessary to put their feelings into language, and to help them by-pass the universal experience of hurt kids: to blame themselves and to carry the scars inside. A wonderful tool to help hurt kids heal!" Bessel van der Kolk, MD, Medical Director Trauma Center at JRI, Professor of Psychiatry, Boston University School of Medicine.
