Excellent, Preschool, Laura Vaccaro Seeger, Growing Up, Fear
Creepy crawly spiders, shadows in the dark, and moving to a new place can be terrifying. A little girl takes you through some scary situations and turns them around into something less frightening. She shows that sometimes a spider maybe beautiful with its detailed web, or that shadows on the wall can be a silly hand puppet.
