“Nighttime Fantasy” helps to identify a universal fear of mothers and the dark manifested by children that should be easy for them with which to identify. This fantasy can often times be experienced when a child feels abandoned in darkness. The book will help the parent and child discuss the fear of bed time. A discussion can promote reassurances that the fantasy is only a fantasy, not a reality. As a result of the book, we can only hope that the “fantasy” will be short-lived.
