All children love to be read a story and Pamela Douglas believes that reading to children at an early age encourages a love of books and a desire to learn to read themselves. These are a collection of READ TO stories for younger children. They are all about different animals who are each afraid of the one thing most inconvenient to their lives. These are fears that many children have and indeed that a fair number of adults carry with them into their older lives. However, in THE WHO'S AFRAID STORIES there is always a remedy. Each animal finds a happy solution of how to conquer their fear through the love and kindness of friends, family, or a chance encounter with a willing helper. This serves a dual purpose, as the helpers who solve their problems find out what a good feeling it gives them to be able to help someone in need.Show more
