Ben is afraid of dogs, even his new neighbor’s old scaredy-dog, Max. Can big, brave Ben overcome his fear and make a new kind of friend?

New neighbors are moving in across the street and Ben can’t wait to say hello and make friends with their daughter, Erv. That is, until he notices that this family has a pet dog. Dogs make Ben nervous. But when Ben is brave enough to go visit, he learns that Max is an “old scaredy-dog” who is afraid of things, too. Can Ben overcome his fear and make a new kind of friend?

From the award-winning author-illustrator team of Sarah Ellis and Kim La Fave, Ben and the Scaredy-Dog is a heart-warming story about the beloved Ben overcoming his fear of dogs.
