Only When We Are Afraid
Can We Learn To Be Brave

Most kids love hide-and-seek, but Camila just wants to hide.
Hiding is what she does best when she worries,
and she worries a lot.

What if
I can’t
I’m scared!

But when an anxious classmate asks for help, Camila discovers that her heart is bigger than her fears.

From the creative author-illustrator team of The Invisible Boy, this wonderful tale of courage and compassion will embolden readers to face their own fears.
