This book, by Joseph Anthony, is the story of one tiny Dandelion seed who is too afraid to let go of the flower and float free. He finally musters up the courage and does let go and has a wonderful time. The lesson of this book is an important one for kids and adults alike.
Use this literature response to have your students think of a time when they too were afraid to do something but eventually did and it was great!
