In this classic tale, a little old lady resolved not to be afraid of anything. As she walked deeper into the woods to collect herbs and whatnot that little old ladies collect while alone in a spooky forest full of shadowy apparitions that lurk at night, of course, she meets with stranger things. I shan’t tell you what they are except to whisper that they are discombobulating, spectral and you will most certainly quake in your boots. At once brave and terror-stricken, but never afraid, the little old lady confronted the moon lit visage and tell it to “F___ off”. Well, some polite form of that. She faced her fear straight-on and put it in its place, quite literally, where it is always within sight but never within reach.
For some of us, that’s how it’ll always be. Call this fear anything - insecurity, anxiety, depression, despondence, anger, inertia or debilitation by any name. A fear we cannot vanquish entirely, but with resolution, can be kept at bay if we find within ourselves our own Little-Old-Lady-Who-Is-Not-Afraid-Of-Anything.
Ah, yes, and also very suitable for children 1 year and up. Life’s lessons must be instilled from young! A lesson story presented in decent illustrations with cutesy graphics and catchy words that one can sing and boogie to.
