Fear is such a common feeling in childhood that everybody takes for granted that children know what it is; however, reality shows that we do not teach kids how to cope with emotions, what to do with them, how not to feel embarrassed, and to acknowledge that fear is also a means to protecting ourselves from danger. Why do we feel scared? What occurs in the brain when we are afraid of something? This book addresses all these issues with humor. It includes references drawn from literature and cinema.

We tackle subjects that touch highly sensitive cords for all human beings, such as emotions, feelings, values, and prejudices. Their reading should lead to essential questions: Who are we? What are our values? What is life? What are those things that thrill us, worry us, and define us?
