15 Books to Help Kids Overcome Their Fears

8 of 16
book for child afraid of strangers, Berenstain Bears

The Berenstain Bears Learn About Strangers by Stan and Jan Berenstain


Another great Berenstain Bears book addresses not only stranger safety but also the fear of strangers — making it perfect for kids who are confused by the rule "don't talk to strangers." When Sister Bear begins to think of all strangers as evil, Mama Bear explains some common-sense concepts. The book concludes with a list of "Bears' rules for safe conduct among strangers," including a rule about the privacy of a bear's body.
