Exploring common night time fears about monsters under the bed, in cupboards or lurking in shadows. This book may help to explain to a child in a humorous way that lots of people feel the same way. The humour lies in the fact that this book is about a monster having a 'daymare' about a child!
Many young children develop a fear of the dark, vividly imagining sinister things lurking under the bed. As parents it is often our first reaction to tell children that there’s nothing to be scared of, but the fears and feelings are very real to the child. These picture books acknowledge fears and phobias associated with the dark. Some books aim to neutralise fears by promoting darkness as a positive and necessary aspect of the night.
