15 Books to Help Kids Overcome Their Fears

15 of 16
book for anxious child, Scaredy Squirrel

Scaredy Squirrel by Melanie Watt


The world outside Scaredy Squirrel's tree can be scary — with germs, and insects, and sharks, not to mention green Martians — so he never leaves. But one day, when his nightmare comes true and he finds himself out of his tree, he leaps into the unknown and discovers some very cool, quite un-scary things. It's a cute story for kids dealing with all different forms of anxiety.
