Chill Out with a Good Book ~ What Is A Witch Afraid Of? by Kiki Howell

A Children's Picture Book


BLURB:
“Why does the night have to be so dark?” the big dog named Drake gave a low bark.

Not everyone likes Halloween. In fact, the big dog named Drake is afraid of the costumes and the decorations and the dark. He really only likes the candy his boy drops.

Lucky for Drake, the old dog named Zoe is there to help him forget his fears with a fun game.

Drake and Zoe can’t wait for you to play along. 

Reviews for What Are You Afraid Of?:

 This book is beautifully written with bright photos and poetry woven throughout.  The author has written in such a way that the child can identify with Drake and if he can overcome his fears then of course, the reader can... the idea of "picturing in your mind" is well put and easy to understand. I recommend this book to parents for their little ones who are still grasping at things they don't quite understand yet. As a teacher, it is always good to find a book that a child and parent can share to get life's lessons taught in a good and positive way." ~Paulette L. Harris, Teacher
“I'd say the book is an excellent children's book that teaches kids of all ages how to overcome fears and insecurities. I read "What Are You Afraid Of?" with my two children ages 10 & 12, and both enjoyed the book very much. The book seems to be one which will work for multiple age groups. Kiki Howell does an excellent job of sparking interest through the illustrations and the rhyming passages throughout the story. I would not be surprised to see many more children's books released by this multi-talented writer.” ~Emily Martinez at http://emilysfrugaltipsforclarkcounty.blogspot.com/

"I thought this book was an adorable and refreshing read. It goes over a very real problem that every child faces and gives a simple but fun way to deal with it. We are dog lovers in our house and have two ourselves, so we can also appreciate the characters and the wonderful pictures. The kids really love the rhyming especially since Mama adds the fun voices when reading it. Hopefully this was the first of many children's books we see from Kiki Howell.
