The Darkness Doesn’t Bite

Dorit Orgad
AGE: 3-6

"It`s dark all of a sudden and I`m stuck here, under the bed!" I wept. Roee knew how to reach me by the sound of my crying. He grabbed my hand and said with a smile: "There`s nothing to be afraid of. The darkness doesn`t bite!" A new boy named Roee is about to come to Yuval`s kindergarten. The excitement grows when the kindergarten teacher tells the children that Roee cannot see. Intrigued, Yuval becomes friends with Roee and discovers that you don`t only see with your eyes- you can also "see" with your hands. Yuval learns how Roee plays and experiences day- to- day life. One day, while Roee and Yuval are playing in the room, the light suddenly goes out and it gets very dark. Yuval cries and is frightened, but Roee, who is used to the dark, shows him there is no need to fear the dark because it "doesn`t bite." A story about accepting others, and what others can teach us.
