How can you shake your fears?
Let’s see what you can do.
First and foremost, remember –
They are not you.
You are much more than your fears,
This is true.
THE BLURB: We All Live On This Planet Together teaches children to focus their attention on inner strengths and the beauty in our world to manage fear while accepting their negative feelings. It shows how letting our fears build can be overwhelming, distort self-image and how we view the world.
MY THOUGHTS: I have read through this book several times, and have shared it with friends who work with children. I think that this book is an excellent teaching/discussion tool, rather than a book for a child to read on its own. After the book has been worked through with the child, I believe that it will become a valuable resource for the child to refer back to.
The ideas are simply put, easy to grasp, and should lead to discussion of the issues addressed quite naturally. The author points out how easily fear overwhelms other things in our lives, how it smothers enjoyment, and provides strategies to help children cope with their fears.
I absolutely love the illustrations, particularly the one of overwhelming fear.
