The Nightmare Bug

We rated this book:


The Nightmare Bug is the perfect book for children with nightmares. In the story, a small child is scared of the nightmare bug. The child’s mother tells the child that to beat the bug, the bug must be hugged. So, knowing that mom knows best, the child grabs Blankie, Bear, and Rhino and gets ready to settle in for a night of adventures and dreams and a mission to hug that nightmare bug.

I think this book would be helpful for so many families with small children who get nightmares. Although the story itself is simple and whimsical, it will attract and engage little eyes and ears and help them to hug their own nightmare bug. The illustrations in the book are reminiscent of Where the Wild Things Are with muted watercolors and textures, which make the story soothing even when the child is having a nightmare. Parents will also appreciate the tips at the end of the book, which will help with what to say to a child waking up from a nightmare and ways to help children cope with nightmares. An excellent book for ages three to eight.
