In the Franklin Classic Storybook that started it all, poor little Franklin has one of the most common childhood afflictions-he is afraid of the dark. This is particularly difficult for Franklin as he happens to be a turtle, and the darkness he fears is, of course, inside his own shell. Bravely, with shell in tow, he sets forth to seek help and in the course of his travels discovers a bird who is afraid of heights, a polar bear who is afraid of the cold, and even a hydrophobic duck. In the end, Franklin discovers that everybody, even his own mother, is afraid of something, and his response to what he has learned is guaranteed to draw a smile.

My daughter loved this one. Beautiful pictures with lots of things to point at and name plus a good story about everyone being afraid of something and how to conquer it.

I love this story. It's well-written and has great illustrations. It reassures children that it's ok to be afraid of something. I also enjoyed this story on DVD.
