What scares you?
A few examples of things that people are afraid of include heights, snakes, and speaking in front of large crowds, etc . . . But Alvin Ho, the main character of Alvin Ho: Allergic to Girls, School, and Other Scary Things is afraid of so much more!!! This book tells the story of a boy (just about to begin 2nd grade) and how his fears control his whole life. He is afraid of everything, including but not limited to elevators, trains, bridges, substitute teachers, shots, school, etc . . . Throughout this book you will see how Alvin tries to use his PDK (Personal Disaster Kit) to help him deal with all of the scary situations he encounters, which according to Alvin is almost everything in his whole entire life. This is a really fun book and will make anyone feel much braver, at least in comparison to Alvin!
