Bailey Bunny and the Fear Monster
Bailey Bunny and the Fear Monster, is a picture book targeted at the 3 to 7- year- age group. The story creates a secure setting in which Bailey Bunny feels “safe and warm and loved.” The story focuses on his daily reading and rocking in his child-sized chair. The conflict occurs when Bailey begins having a recurring nightmare about a Fear Monster taking away his rocking chair. Mama Bunny rushes to his bedside to comfort him. The third time it happens, she teaches him about courage and gives him a courage stone to keep under his pillow to remind him that he is strong and can face the Fear Monster on his own.

Great book. Our 3-year-old son's imagination was exploding and he was having nightmares and a difficult time sleeping. We read this book and talked about fear and the courage inside of him. He loves the book and it has given him the confidence to sleep through the night. He loves repeating that Baily felt "safe and warm and loved"!

As the mother of a 5-year-old, I love this book. Bailey Bunny goes through the same fears that most children deal with at some time in their childhood. Whether it is a nightmare or a real life fear, Bailey can help children find their own courage through a fun story that my daughter already has memorized and can "read" along with me. I have recommended it to all of my friends with young children.

A well written, beautifully illustrated book. At any age we need to find ways to over-come fear and become courageous.
