Picks and Pans Review: Linda Saves the Day

UPDATED 03/05/1990 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 03/05/1990 at 01:00 AM EST

Linda is a little girl with a big phobia. She's afraid of dogs. So she's afraid to go to Alfred's birthday party because of Alfred's new puppy. Linda's mom tries to help. But in the end, Linda has to bravely face her phobia, which she does. This story, written by child psychologist Lawrence Baiter and illustrated by Roz Schanzer, looks and sounds like a children's book, but a foreword and epilogue assure us that it has a very serious purpose—to help children cope with crippling fears. (Barron's, $5.95—ages 3-7)
