Day 10. Some Things are Scary

Book 47.
Is it wrong that, as an adult, I also find some of these things to be scary. Things like...

Waiting to jump out and say BOO! at someone is scary.


Thinking you're not going to be picked for either side is scary.

and especially

Playing hide-and-deek when you're it and you can't find anyone is scary.

I think a lot of my students could connect to the situations in this book. Unfortunately, I think the illustrations might turn a number of them off. Perhaps a result of production, the illustrations appear dated and faded. Not something you'd expect from a picture book published in the year 2000.
