When Fuzzy Was Afraid of Big and Loud Things

Author(s): Inger M. Maier; Jennifer Candon (Illustrator)


Fuzzy the little sheep lived on a farm with his Maah and Paah and all of the other farm animals. He loved to play with his friends and search for butterflies among the flowers....But Fuzzy was afraid of some things.

Fuzzy the Little Sheep is back again, in this charming third addition to the series about dealing with common fears.

In this tale, Fuzzy is afraid of loud sounds such as thunder and lightning, and the large animals on the farm making big noises Fuzzy's father helps him desensitize to these big and loud noises using a number of behavioral practices. Each time Fuzzy is afraid, his father gently encourages and reassures him, helping him imaginatively practice exposure to the loud sounds so he can get used to them, and also acquainting Fuzzy with the sources of his fears so they seem less frightening.

Examples of coping strategies are interwoven with humorous imagery, self-soothing thoughts, and realistic expectations. Includes a Note to Parents.
