Fearful Frannie by Stephanie Dulin

Local author Stephanie Dulin tells a tale in this children’s story about Frannie, a little girl who is afraid of everything. Frannie is fearful of jumping off the diving board, eating new foods, sliding on the playground and even riding her bike. She eventually learns that it’s best to give new things a try—because you never know, you just might like it! This is a great read for young kids who experience trepidation over new things (much like my own toddlers). More info at FranniesOnline.com
