When You’re Scared

  • This sweet summer read reminds that we all have fears, but encourages acting with courage and compassion even when you’re scared.


    A boy and his mother set up camp in the forest. They cross paths with a bear cub, who is stuck in a garbage bin, and his mother, who is trying in vain to free him. The protagonists are scared, but they will have to overcome their fear.


    Parallel stories of the mother and son, and mama and cub, come together when the campers, despite being scared, help rescue the cub from the dumpster.
