Priscilla has a BIG problem. She’s AFRAID of everything. She worries about school work, making mistakes, and even worries about worrying. What’s even worse is she’s missing out on things she’d like to do, such as performing in front of an audience.
Her good friend Ollie Owl has an idea. Priscilla can overcome one of her fears by setting a goal. Taking several small steps toward that goal will help her achieve it. Wanting to play her violin in the school talent show, Priscilla agrees. As the steps become more difficult, Priscilla has to gather more and more courage to accomplish each one.
Can Priscilla achieve each step and overcome her fear even though sometimes her heart pounds and her stomach feels queasy?
