Children know what it's like to be afraid, but they may have no idea how to handle the feeling. In Scared, a bunny boy is so frightened that his heart feels like it's beating out of his chest. Lots of things scare him: spiders, bullies, the dark. The book reassures children that scary feelings are natural and can sometimes help them steer clear of danger. Called a "touch-and-feel" book, this title features slightly raised images that add dimension to the darling illustrations. A few questions to "think about" enhance the book's already considerable usefulness. Other titles in the series address happiness, anger, and sadness. Ilene Cooper
