In Nothing to Fear From the Dark, My Dear by Traci Dunham, the author explains about the fear of the dark that many kids have. The sounds at night scare the little boy, be it the howling wind, the lightning, or the pattering of the rain. His mother explains to him that there is nothing to fear from the dark and sends him back to his room. The sounds still scare him – he feels there is a monster in his closet and a ghost outside his room, but he decides to remember what his mother has told him; that there is nothing to fear from the dark.
The story is cute and effectively handles a relevant topic, that of being scared of the dark. Almost every child goes through this phase of being afraid of darkness while growing up. The illustrations are lively and vivid, and they capture the fear of the boy and his emotions beautifully, breathing life into the story and the scenes. It’s an excellent bedtime storybook and parents and grandparents should read it out to their kids and grandkids. The story is also good for interactive sessions in classrooms and school libraries. Most kids are afraid of the dark and tend to hear all sorts of sounds and noises at night. The author captures that concept through the story of the little boy, and convinces them that there is nothing scary about the dark.
