This gorgeous picture book tells the story of a little boy’s fear of the dark.`

This book has hundreds of tiny holes that show shadows and a starry sky, try reading it next to a lamp or use a torch to shine light through the holes and see what happens!

Each child will have the opportunity to take this book home to share with their family. They will also bring home a scrap book where they can record their thoughts and feelings about the story.
