El miedo de Iván, by Ariel Andres Almada, Cha Coco (Illustrator)
Join us in June for Cuentacuentos featuring El miedo de Iván. Includes reading, word practice and activities.  About the book: The sea, mist, loud noises… Ivan’s afraid of everything! And with all those frights and shivers, his dreams of having great adventures and visiting far-away places seem more and more unlikely. But could an unexpected visitor help him overcome his deepest fears? Could an old African song change his life forever?
El miedo de Iván is an inspiring tale about the bravery we need in order to live our lives with joy and happiness. It is a journey to the very center of our hearts, which will give us the courage and bravery to face up to any obstacle that stands in our way.
