Good Night Monster

Shira Geffen
AGE: 3-6

Ruthie’s scared of her dream because there’s a blue monster with an orange nose in it. Dad brings her Yossi, her cloth elephant, to hug and she falls asleep. And now Yossi’s scared. So he calls out to another toy who comes and hugs him, and in turn needs comfort. Until everyone’s asleep—except for the clock that never rests and the blue monster shivering in a corner. Who will calm her down? Well, she gets into Ruthi’s bed too, finds her hand and then she can also sleep.
A beautiful tale about kids’ fear of the dark. The circular structure, with the friendly monster that also needs warmth, is calming.
