Description from GoodReads:
Two fuzzy friends go to an amusement park. They try to convince each other that there are much scarier things than the roller coaster. Hairy spiders! Aliens! Fried ants! They soon discover that sometimes being scared isn’t as “scary” as they thought. With expressive illustrations and simple text, this giggle-inducing tale about (not) being scared features the endearing characters from the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award winner You Are (Not) Small.
Thoughts on this book:
It is no secret that I love these two furry creatures and the stories created by Kang & Weyant. Since I had an early copy of I AM (NOT) SCARED, I decided to read it with kindergarten and first grade students for READ ACROSS AMERICA.
We talked about the way you could read the emotions on the face of the characters in the book.
We laughed at the tub of hairy spiders and pan of fried ants.
And the snake just took us over the top.
Kang and Weyant are fabulous at capturing the emotions of fear and exhilaration as our furry and not so furry friends move from the trepidation of riding a roller coaster to the electrification of a successful ride. Readers will delight with this new book adventure and want to hear it over and over again.
And now, readers get to enjoy the book along with the new plush furry friends created by MerryMakers.
