A Beautiful Keepsake and Inspiration for Everyone! Who has NOT been afraid at least once in their life? This wonderful story teaches us - in children's language - how to overcome our fear; let go and pursue our dreams on life's journey. The hardcover, the illustrations in watercolor, and every detail of this book are thoughtfully selected by the author. I am so proud that the author is my daughter! Her own personal struggle to overcome fear gave birth to this story. It is a very special book. The very best gift for a child is a book that his/her Mom or Dad reads to them and it will speak to the parents too! Gift this book to someone that you love. You will be very glad that you did!
