My oldest started Kindergarten this year. Talk about a mess of feelings and lessons!! I can only hope as a mom that I can give him the skills and knowledge he needs to be the person he should be. One thing that I want to make sure he has is COURAGE!! He will need courage for many things in life. What better way to do it than through a book!
Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns about Courage is a great book for teaching little one about fear and how it’s okay to have fear. They talk about the two different kinds of fear. Fear One: The real kind is the fear of something that can really harm us. We should listen to this fear; it is there to protect us, to make us pay attention and be very careful. Fear Two: The make-believe kind of fear is when we are afraid of something that can’t really harm us, like fear of the dark, fear of the first day at school, fear of toilets, or fear of loud. It talks about how people who don’t feel afraid of anything can’t really be brave. That in order to be brave you must have fear and still do what you need to do regardless of being afraid.
I love Howard B. Wigglebottom books because each one focus on a lesson that little one’s need to learn. It’s hard enough for us adults to learn some of these lessons. For example, courage! How many times did you need to have courage to tackle a obsticle? Do you remember how hard it was for you to deal with? Imagine that as a 5-year-old! The best part of these books is what’s at the end. It provides some notes for parents and how to talk about the topic with your little one!!
