    How wonderful that you have literature that Bear can relate to! That's probably one of the best way to help children deal with their fears. JC was afraid of shadows at point but once she learned that she can control them by making shadow animals, she found them fascinating. There aren't too many things she's afraid of being she either draws about it, talks about it or acts it out during her pretend play. I think they are great coping skills that she's developed on her own.

    Sounds like Bear found her own way to deal with night fears and with thunder. Anna doesn't seem to mind natural phenomena, she is mostly worried about supernatural. She is not a big fan of Halloween and even though we read literally dozens of books about it she still doesn't like scary costumes and doesn't even want to talk about who she wants to be. Thanks for joining WMCIR!

    My kids love the Little Quack books. It makes sense that she found comfort in this book. It's great that she was able to deal with her fear this way.

    A couple of months ago, I blogged about an Elmo book that was about going to the doctor. My daughter was one of those kids you can hear crying hysterically down the hall before she even got a shot. Well we read the book and played dr. and the appointment went so so so much better!

    My girl really got a lot out of the book 'Feeling Scared'. She loves it and we talk a lot about it. Also a library book that we borrow a lot! (:http://www.amazon.com/When-Feeling-Scared-Trace-Moroney/dp/0769644279

    how sweet. I made the mistake of reading "Burgler Bill" the other night to Kenzie…. this resulted in lots of questions. "will we get burgled?" "do Burglers really exist?"Then he had to check all the windows were closed….. i will have to choose stories a little better in future!

    This sounds like a good book. We have a fear of bears here.. I need to try and find something to help with that. However, just reading brown bear brown bear gives him nightmares 😛
