* You Can't Be Brave If You Don't Have Fear! *
The above statement is one that is taken from the suggested lesson and reflection plan that goes along with the book "Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns About Courage". You can find these suggested lessons and reflections at the end of each book in the Howard B. Wigglebottom series, as well as online through the WeDoListen.org website. I have reviewed many of the wonderful books in the Howard B. Wigglebottom line with my twin girls and we always enjoy the lesson behind each story, and this particular story is no exception! I like the point made that it is normal and healthy for us all to have fears, and that some fears are particularly good to have because they can help warn us of real danger. The book also helps to recognize that some fears really are harmless, such as Howard's fears of spiders and snakes. Howard realizes in the book that they can actually be pretty fascinating! If you have younger children then I highly recommend you check out the Howard B. Wigglebottom series. Children can easily relate to the characters in these stories and the message is driven home in a fun way that also encourages conversation after the story has ended. As a parent I just love these books!
