Picture Books to Help Kids Overcome Common Fears

Everyone has things they are afraid of. When I was little, I was scared of many, many things, including, but not limited to dark closets, being up past my bedtime, my grandparents’ basement, poison dart frogs, cleaning supplies, fireworks, earthquakes, and dogs. I’m pleased to share that today I no longer fear poison dart frogs hiding in my bed at night, cleaning supplies are my BFF, and I love dogs more than humans. But getting over these fears was no easy feat. Help your kid get a start on conquering their inner demons with these encouraging and empowering picture books!
