SCARED OF THE DARK is a rhyming picture book for children.
Shadows dance on your wall
Curtains flap in the breeze
Floorboards squeak in the hall
The wind whips through the trees
**Some children may find a small section (4 pages) to be scary but the section is easy to skip without affecting the story.
The dark can be scary, especially when you don’t know what you’re afraid of. But you’re not alone, most of us have felt scared at night and the dark’s not actually so bad. Discover some of the reasons for our fear, meet friendly animals who play in the night and learn to think of the dark in a new way. Oh and just in case some monsters are real…you’ll be reminded that you’re braver than you may think!
A DIFFERENT KIND OF READ BOOK REVIEW
There comes a time in every parent’s life when they must deal with the monster in the closet, the whispers under the bed, and even “the Martians are gonna get me!” fear that every child experiences. Okay, that last one was me when I saw my first scary movie at the age of ten . In any event, I felt that SCARED OF THE DARK, was a visual way to help children overcome many frightening obstacles that they experience at night. It is also something they can read on their own thus providing a tool when dealing with this problem.
The question is will you be able to sleep through the SCREAMING, HOLLERING, and/or YELLING as they solve their problem. Of course we will, that’s what parents do. Okay, I know you wimps will be there every time they call. Get SCARED OF THE DARK, so you can get some rest.
The UNIQUE thing about SCARED IN THE DARK is that it’s a handbook for your child to use as they learn, in their own way, how not to be afraid of darkness.
SCARED OF THE DARK is recommended for First Time Readers (1-8) and Middle Grade Readers to age 10.
