From Michael Rosenblum, the bestselling author of Happily Ever Always: A Guide to Personal Transformation, Security, Confidence, and Healthy Self, comes a debut book for beginning readers. This ageless story introduces us to a caterpillar named "Fear". Fear is afraid of everything - the other critters who share the garden, lightning storms, being bullied and making new friends. A chance encounter with a wise butterfly named "Faith" helps Fear find the courage within to experience the world in a bolder and more joy-filled way. Rosenblum's message for children is simple yet profound: fear is just faith turned inside out. "Children will realize that changing fear to faith is up to them as they explore this magical story. Bravo, Michael Rosenblum!" Dr. Kathleen Hagstrom Principal Walt Disney Magnet School Chicago Public Schools
