Anat Umanksyabout this book: "Don't think you can't" is a book about BIG success that wins Fears! or in other words, how to turn fears into success skills.
This theme applies both to kids and adults.
What inspired me most to write this book is the faith that each of us
can do much more than we think we can do, if only we could fear less from all sorts of fears.
It seems that some people can get everything they want,
while others always fall short of their goals. In this amusing story,
the crow, who is dying for a bite of a big, beautiful tomato,
can't manage to get it for fear of the hungry wolf.
His dear friend, the rabbit, on the other hand, has no problem getting at the tomato
and happily gobbling it all up to the last bit, though he too is afraid of the wolf.
Afraid… and how! While he had to hear all the crow's warnings.
The lessons learned from this short story will be important to remember for children for years to come. The adults who read the stories can help their children visit their fears and discuss how to overcome them.
The illustrator, Eyvegeni Lagutin, has given us colorful, vivid pictures of the creatures and tomatoes who inhabit this book. The illustrations bring the story to life.
