The Story of The Dark is a picture book adventure about two young children who accidentally discover The Dark, a benevolent and rather shy entity, while searching for their dog. The children’s exploration, creative thinking and bravery are rewarded with accomplishment, confidence, and a greater comfort about the world around them. Although the story happens to weave many years of knowledge about nighttime fears into its pages, this picture book is designed to be entertaining for kids of all ages. Best ages 4-6 yr olds, but 3-8 yr olds also enjoy ISBN 9780615948058

Customer Reviews

Great kids book!

I would recommend this book for general reading for children or if you have a child who is afraid of being in or sleeping in the dark. My two kids are 3 and 4 and love the book. It quickly became a favorite in our house. The vulnerability of the character of The Dark sparked some conversations about how we sleep and that we don't need to be scared just because we can't see light. How do I know that it sunk in with my two little ones? Last night I got a request to get rid of the night lights in their room!

Creative Imagery and Beautiful Illustations

Although my own daughter is now grown, I still find myself in the children’s book section looking for exceptional books to send as gifts to the children of my family and friends. I always look for books that teach a lesson in a quiet, inconspicuous way, using creative imagery and beautiful illustrations. “The Story of The Dark”, hits this mark. It tackles fear of the dark from an angle, not front on, and that makes this book appropriate for children who either do, or don’t especially have anxiety about darkness. I love that The Dark is portrayed as shy and playful and that his best friend is the sun. Meeting to play at dawn and dusk is an accessible way to describe our daytime and nighttime to young children. This book will be what I give for gifts to the young children on my list this year!
