Meeting Fear with Confidence--Fighting the Dragon of Fear of Bullies

Dian Layton is known for her storytelling adventures. A gifted communicator, Dian understands children, their emotions, strengths, and weaknesses. In this book, she addresses children's fear of the dark, the first day at school, and bullies.

JD Hornbacher's illustrations are "right on" and fabulous: capturing the priceless expressions on the kid's faces, moving from freight to boldness, gloating delight, and shear victory as they gain confidence over fear as the dragon retreats in awe of their courage.

There are several features of the book include that are essential when relating a message on fear to children:

An Introduction with suggestions for parents to help get the most benefit from the book

The Illustrations by Illustrator JD Hornbacher

The rhythm of the Text--A Song Story cadence

A Bible Application

A Unique "Talk About It" time

The book is designed for early readers, ages 6-9, but is delightful reading for all ages--a strong message of Jesus as King who takes away fear.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
