15 Books to Help Kids Overcome Their Fears

Halloween children's book, Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything

The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything by Linda D. Williams


Any child who is afraid of Halloween — or creepy, dark nights in general — should meet the fearless little old lady who stars in this book. When the signs of a ghost — shoes, pants, and a pumpkin head — appear one by one and chase the old lady, she assures the floating figures "I am not afraid of you!" Kids will love the "CLOMP CLOMP" and "WIGGLE WIGGLE" refrain as the objects move, and are sure to become just as brave as the little old lady. (Check out these other cute Halloween books.)
