Scary Night Visitors helps young children understand the sources of their bedtime fears, by showing how a young boy’s scary visitors are projections of his own angry feelings toward his younger sister as well as his fear that his bad wishes might come true. He discovers that his thoughts and wishes are not as powerful as he fears, so he can feel safe enough to let himself experience his emotions without imagining scary creatures. Parents and professionals will find this book an engaging tool to use in helping to deal with this common but troubling childhood problem. Ages 4 and up.
