Fantastic Fin Faces his Fears by Jessica Bowers illustrated by Andrew Whitehead #Review

Today I have a great picture book for you to share with young children: Fantastic Fin Faces his Fears by Jessica Bowers.

Come and join Fantastic Fin as he grows his courage by embodying various inspiring characters and animals to face his fears!

Teachers, Parents and Carers can access the free Fantastic Fin Teaching Resource Pack available from the author's website.

This is the first book in a series supporting children's mental health by well-being author and psychotherapist Jessica Bowers. Ideal for children age 4-7.

Young children will enjoy following Fantastic Fin as he shows them how to overcome their fears about certain social situations. This will be a great tool to use in discussions with children on meeting new friends, feeling shy, sharing, having injections, being afraid of the dark. These are all relatable events. Told in rhyme these short stories will appeal to young readers.

The illustrations are bold and colourful, with certain words highlighted in bold for emphasis. I notice that this is the first book in a series which is good news!

Cat and Mouse say: face those fears and blow them away!
