A book to encourage bravery in a child when they afraid of the dark.
Bedtime fears – the dark, monsters under the bed and sleeping alone – are all common for a young child. These are the years when your child’s powers of imagination are exploding, which means that now he can imagine new and scary things to be afraid of. Because he spends a good portion of his day immersed in fantasy play (in the company of dragons and dinosaurs and bad guys), it can be hard for him to shut off his imagination at bedtime and go to sleep. Even familiar things that have never been scary before, like his darkened bedroom, may suddenly seem frightening against the backdrop of what he’s been conjuring up all day. Your child is still learning to distinguish fantasy from reality, so the possibility of an invisible creature under his bed seems quite real to him. Read this book regularly with your child to help them understand fear and bravery.
Children go through distinct periods of development as they move from infants to young adults. During each stage multiple changes in the development of the brain are taking place. Ages and stages is a term used to broadly outline key periods in the human development timeline. Stages include physical, intellectual, language, social and emotional. Brave Books offers a number of titles that cover these exciting yet challenging years.
