A great picture book to help children explore their worries. While it is normal to feel anxious now and then, when anxiety escalates and can't be controlled, sitting down with your child and reading this book together should help.
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.
