Everybody Feels Fear
Ashwin Chacko has given to the world of children and their guardians a special gift in writing this beautifully illustrated book. It is a very helpful resource in providing children an understanding of fear and normalising it as a part of life - we all feel fear and that’s OK.
The text and illustrations in this delightfully inspiring book full of colour and funny characters help explain the emotion of fear to children. Set out with brighter and contrasting darker colours and rhyming verse, humor is introduced to help children laugh as they explore a difficult topic. Whether it is big cats or bats, small mice and cheese, hairy or scary, day or night ,we all feel fear. The strong images personify fear and tell the story in a way that allows children to respond in a more effective and balanced way, by keeping in mind the love and joy that also exists in their lives.
The book encourages children to choose courage, even in a small way, and continue to move forward in the face of fear.
