The parents are tucking the children into bed. The children don’t want Mom and Dad to leave so the parents explain to them that even though they aren’t in the room they are still with them. Comforting them before they go to sleep.
The illustrations are fantastic. I loved the paintings giving the book a very calming effect. It’s a great style for a bedtime story. I loved the close-ups of the people and landscape.
The text had good rhythm and rhyme. I enjoyed the comforting words. In some places, the words seemed forced just to make the rhythm work.
The message of the book is wonderful. Kids are scared at night from noises or the dark. There is a timeless idea that will be something children will always relate to. My favorite part was the parents talking about the dog coming into check on the children. I thought that was just spot on.
Parents will love this book too! I know my daughter has been scared of things lately and this is just the thing to help her feel safer.
