"Jonathan James and the Whatif Monster - by Michelle Nelson-Schmidt. Whenever Jonathan James finds himself in a new situation, he hears his Whatif Monster asking all kind of questions to stop him trying something new: What if it's scary? What if they laugh? Finally, Jonathan James has some questions of his own: What if they don't? What then? Paperback Picture Book. Age 3 and up. Rated 5 Stars!

From School Library Journal:

PreS-K-This picture book about a child who conquers his fears barely manages to avoid didacticism. The voice of the Whatif Monster, a small green creature with pointed teeth, fills Jonathan James's head with worry and doubt when he tries something new. "What if it's hard?/What if you're bad?/What if they laugh and/make you feel sad?" The rhyming text scans well at the beginning, but falters and sometimes feels forced as the story comes to a conclusion. Jonathan James questions the Whatif Monster: "And what if baseball is nothing but fun,/and I end up hitting a triple home run?" The bold, color illustrations are flat, and the faces of the children are lifeless. The ending, in which the boy finds a best friend after taking a chance, is satisfying and the lesson is a good one, but the book is too lacking in style and consistent charm to recommend.-Maralita L.
