Can curiosity override fear?
I remember babysitting for a family in my neighborhood one night when I heard a knock on the backdoor. I looked out the window in the door but no one was there. I thought it was strange, too, because there backyard was fenced in. Everybody always used the front door. I went back to watching TV when I heard the knocking again. Fear filled my whole body. My imagination filled me with the worst scenarios. This went on for hours. Finally curiosity got the best of me and I bravely stepped outside to see who or what was out there, but I saw nothing. I finally parked myself on the kitchen floor, in the dark and waited for the sound to happen again. It took a while but I eventually heard it again. It was coming from the pipes in the walls near the backdoor. I was so re leaved to know what it was. When the parents came home I told them about the noise. The father said, “Oh, yea, I meant to tell you about that .” What a night!
In my book, “A BFF for Princess Sierra,” she hears a strange scary noise but her curiosity gets the best of her and she bravely checks it out. I know your children will enjoy this book and I bet you will too.
