Pig and Horse and the Something Scary

We rated this book:


Pig wakes up feeling uneasy, so he goes to visit his dear friend, Horse. Pig tries to ignore these uncomfortable feelings while Horse offers fun, distracting alternatives. They go on a bike ride, swim, and try on silly hats, but Pig still feels something scary haunting him. Horse comes up with one final solution: a tea party. Instead of trying to ignore these troubles, Horse encourages Pig to invite the scary feelings to join them for tea. Pig’s fears are not easily vanquished, but with the help of her friend, she is able to conquer the scary thoughts and emerge stronger because of this.

Pig and Horse and the Something Scary takes a subtle approach to a serious topic; the moral of this story is to confront your fears instead of keeping it all inside. This story proves that when fears are kept bottled up, they tend to grow bigger and scarier. When Pig allows her friend to help, she feels supported, comforted, and proud of herself. This story can serve as a great tool for parents to understand the fears and worries of children ages four to eight.
