Not SO Scary
Not SO Scary is a fun, engaging and beautifully illustrated story that children love. Aunt Andie Ant, Walt Worm King, Betty Bee Queen, Chief Franco Firefly and Maestro Humphrey Hummingbird feel nervous, worried, curious, excited and afraid as mysterious eggs float down the river that runs through their Bug Island home. They confide in Dr. Spinner Spider and she offers a different perspective. Her wise words, “What feels SCARY now can be a FUN and not so scary surprise!” prove to be true and the story ends with everyone feeling happy. The Not SO Scary story builds emotion vocabulary, an early childhood foundation for emotional intelligence learning. Self-awareness, such as identifying and naming fear and excitement, precedes learning how to manage those emotions. The story also teaches opposites and children gain fine motor skills with the irresistible “Slide Surprise” feature. Not SO Scary is a bed-time favorite and a great add to any child’s library. It’s a book they keep coming back to over & over again and it’s the first book of the Hoppy & Poppie PinkCheeks series for ages 0+.
Children learn a range of emotions that they can experience when encountering the unknown.
