Sylvia's new friend is afraid of the chickens in Mr. Brown's farm. Everyone rallies to make sure all the chickens are in the coop and then Mr. Brown shares that he used to be afraid of dogs. When he then talks about how he met his own fear with patience and little steps, Sylvia's friend feels brave enough to try it herself.
