George is afraid of the dark and has difficulty going to sleep. He wishes he had a friend to keep him company at nighttime. As soon as he wishes this, a friendly mouse comes out of hiding and they have a small adventure through the house, meeting all sorts of new friends who also share their fears. Together they help to calm another new friend who is shaking in fear. At the end of the book, all of George’s new friends help tuck him back into bed.
Seng Soun Ratanavanh has written a new classic for bedtime in (Amazon affiliate link) George and His Nighttime Friends. This is a wonderful little story to open up discussions about fears while providing a happy ending at the end. The full color illustrations add to the story.
