    Book Review: “Playing Scared: A History and Memoir of Stage Fright” by Sara Solovitch () stage fright / By Makiko Hirata. Now that I am working on a book of my own, I read books very differently. When I first learned of this book, I was alarmed that there was already a book out there I was going to write. I was relieved to find out that. Age: from 3 years old This book is nice but all the books of the series I have read so far, are very similar: " when you feel angry/sad/scared/worried tell someone. It is o.k. to feel angry/sad/scared/worried, even grown up people feel like this, and that feeling is not going to last forever, you will feel better".4/5(27).
