Do you have a child that is struggling with going to sleep in the dark? Parents all across the country are facing this issue every single night. When you are a kid with an active imagination it is really easy to dream up monsters in the night. This book helps easy children's fears with delightful little rhymes.
The creation of this book came from memories of being scared as a child. The author dives into the memories of those moments. We all have them, I had many of them as a child. She presents a great bit of logic about fears in a way that kids will be able to understand.
I am always looking for a moral in kids books. Without one the book lacks a point, and a learning lesson for the child. The moral of this book is that while things are really scary, you are safe. There is a logical reason behind the noises you hear. This book teaches kids to be brave.
The rhymes in this book are really good and are far from forced or awkward. This book has a great pace, and is easy to read out loud. The book has only a few sentences on each page so it is perfect for even beginning readers.
Overall this is a highly recommended kids book. One that every kids library should have. I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest, and completely unbiased review. Opinions are my own.
Go check out the book here and ease your child's fears!
