In This Makes Me Scared, a young boy is terrified about taking swim lessons. The water is cold, chlorine burns his eyes, and worst of all, everyone is watching him. He’s scared that he’ll never learn to swim–or drown trying! When his instructor shows him how to calm his mind, the boy decides to face his fear and open himself up to a fun, new experience.
The Dealing with Feelings series of early readers is designed to give voice to what’s brewing inside. Through short, simple text and repetitive observational phrases, children will learn to name their emotions as they learn to read.
