I’m Not Afraid
Lee Ann Mancini
Lee Ann Mancini has put together a fun, colorful book aimed at the preschooler or early reader. Fear is a common emotion – but an uncomfortable one for many people. The art and story will help the young child understand that fear is normal and that Jesus can help him or her deal with their fears.
The colorful 3-D fish will hold the reader’s attention – whether the book is being read to the child or the book is being read by the child. After reaching the end of the book, I was surprised to find I had missed the book’s hidden secret: each page includes a small hidden image to be found within the picture (ala Where’s Waldo). Finding out the secret, I was forced to again walk through the book to find the unexpected prize found on each page.
The book will serve as a swell gift from a parent to a child or a welcome addition to the home, Church, or Sunday School library. Some public libraries will feel comfortable adding it to their collections as well.
