Intelligent, reassuring, and practical, this book will be of great help to parents looking for ways to help their children deal with upsetting images they see on TV or in movies. The exact source of Teddy's fear is not specified, so the book can be useful in a wide variety of situations. The author also gives step-by-step instruction for what to do with a frightened child. All the while, the book reads like a storybook, not a manual.

The watercolor artwork is literal and unsophisticated, but it functions satisfactorily with the story. A child who is not yet reading could easily follow the sequence of the story through the illustrations.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
