In Frizzy Tizzy Goes to the Park by Wendy Hinbest, Frizzy Tizzy gets to do something new. She gets to go to the park. When she wakes up that morning, she smells bacon and eggs. When she runs downstairs and eats her breakfast, her parents ask her what she wants to do. Frizzy Tizzy tells them that she wants to go to the park and her parents say okay. They go and get dressed and then they go to the park. Frizzy Tizzy loves spending time with her mom and dad. Frizzy Tizzy and her dad go over to the swings and he pushes her on the swing. Before they leave, Frizzy Tizzy wants to go down a slide. She decides to go down the big slide that she has never gone down before. She sees other kids sliding down it and thinks that she can do it if they can. When she goes to slide down, Frizzy Tizzy gets scared. A little girl behind her offers to go down with her so that she won’t be as scared. Then Frizzy Tizzy wants to go down the slide again and again. Frizzy Tizzy and the girl become friends and Frizzy Tizzy is no longer afraid to go down the slide.

Frizzy Tizzy Goes to the Park by Wendy Hinbest is a great story that will teach your kids not to be afraid of doing something just because it is scary. Just because it is different doesn’t mean it is bad. You might make a new friend along the way that will help you overcome your fear. I love how well the fear of going down the slide comes through. I also love how a new friend comes along and helps her overcome the fear. The blossoming friendship is shown well through simple and kind acts that little kids can truly appreciate. It's a well written book about an amazing little girl.
