This would be a wonderful book for children who are afraid of things. Sandat retells the story of Humpty Dumpty but after the fall.
Humpty recovers but is afraid to climb the wall again for fear of falling.
In the end, he manages to not only climb the wall but soar to new heights.

Great chance for children to learn about success after failure or overcoming fears.

Humpty Dumpty loves bird watching from the top of the wall, but after his fall the anxiety of heights takes over his thoughts and Humpty isn't able to enjoy life the way he used to. Poor Humpty wont even climb the grocery store ladder for the delicious top-shelf sugar cereals--Rainbow Bites and Sugar Frosted Sugar--he settles for "Bo-Rings."

A story about fear, courage, and transformation.

A sure Caldecott contender!
