When Joe goes to stay with his aunt and uncle on their farm he is more than a little afraid of all the different animals. But with all the bravado he can muster he asserts fiercely, "I'm not scared!". Only when Uncle Will needs his help to deliver a lamb in the middle of the night can Joe finally acknowledge his fears. And only when he sees the little creature, more vulnerable and fearful than he is, is he able to overcome them. When Mum and Dad return Joe is proud to show off his baby lamb, and his new-found confidence! Children will identify and sympathise with Joe's secret fears in this warm and tender portrayal of a small boy's first experience of staying away from Mum and Dad.
