What did you like about the book? Most children have a favorite stuffed animal that they snuggle up with when it’s time for bed. So it is with Yeti, who is supposed to be brave. He has a favorite toy, Chunk, who he does everything with. When Chunk goes missing one night, Yeti has to brave the scary dark alone. He finds out that he is braver than he thinks. Most children will associate with Yeti’s dilemma and because of this, will love this book. The illustrations are expressive and by looking at the pictures, children will know exactly how Yeti feels.
