Thank you to author Michael Cascio for sending me this Book for review. As always all thoughts and opinions expressed here are 100% my own.
One of the greatest ways to help your child learn from the very beginning of their beautiful little life is through the magic of books.
I have always loved reading and have incredibly fond memories of “reading” stories before bedtime with my parents. (Technically I just kind of memorized the stories in the beginning and parroted them back, but hey! That’s still learning in and of itself.)
And now, I hope to pass that love of literature on to my own children.
That is why, when author Michael Cascio reached out to me and asked if I would be willing to review his book, “When I was a Child I was Always Afraid”, I was thrilled at the opportunity.
It is a lovely story about taking the time to face your fears. It takes the everyday fears of young children and shines a light on them, essentially debunking them.
Cascio draws from his own life experiences and the advice of his father to create this adorable tale.
While the general theme is a bit advanced for Reef and Roxy at this age, the bright and colorful illustrations really drew them in and held their attention.
The story itself, is laid out in a rhyming fashion and all in all is just a very sweet tale of bravery to share with your little ones.
We love it and it has been a requested read by Reef many times!
With the holidays coming up this would be a great gift for any family with little ones running around.
