Ich trau mich! / Ich trau mich nicht!

Ein Wendebuch über Angst und Mut für Kinder ab 5 Jahren

I Can Do It! / I Can’t Do It!

A strong curtain-raiser for the ellermann


Fold-out Feelings series Two animal families make their new homes in the jungle. But whilst the shy tiger Jonty is rather nervous and prefers to stay close to Mum, the little Orang-Utan Olivia bounces around all over the place. Sometimes we feel really scared, and sometimes we feel really brave. What happens when two characters meet - one bold and one fearful? As you’ll discover in the middle of this book, with its big fold-out double page: they can become best friends!



  • Reticence and boldness: an entertaining way to tackle opposing feelings.

  • Fold-out central page reconciles the two emotions.
