While Fuzzy the Little Sheep is out playing with his friends, he falls and skins his knee. When he cannot immediately find his mother to comfort him, he feels scared and alone. When he finally does find her, he is afraid to let her out of his sight ever again. So Fuzzy's mother comes up with several ideas to help him cope with being away from her, which he practices, and soon he is able to play comfortably without her near.
Lizzy is shy and afraid of failing or making mistakes, so she refuses to try new things. Fuzzy the Little Sheep helps his anxious sister by devising a plan whereby she gets to add a stone to a rock pile every time she tries something new. Lizzy begins hesitantly, with small challenges, but eventually tries more and more things as she gets excited by the growing rock pile and realizes how much fun she is having.
Fuzzy the Little Sheep is back again, in this charming third addition to the series about dealing with common fears. In this tale, Fuzzy is afraid of loud sounds such as thunder and lightning, and the large animals on the farm making big noises! Fuzzy's father helps him desensitize to these big and loud noises using a number of behavioral practices. Each time Fuzzy is afraid, his father gently encourages and reassures him, helping him imaginatively practice exposure to the loud sounds so he can get used to them.
