The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark – Bedtime Reads for Dads and Kids

Written by Jill Tomlinson and illustrated by Paul Howard, this book is about how Plop the owl, who was afraid of the dark learned to love the night.

A splendid choice for reading with primary school-going children who have graduated from simple picture books to worded books.

With a rich yet simple storyline and endearing pictures, The Owl Who was Afraid of the Dark parallels the journey of many a child who has his own fears to conquer. The story encourages exploring and understanding the world at one’s own pace. And as such, it is comforting and assuring.

Do a chapter each time and tuck them into bed, keen to hear more the next night.

Story Gems for Child: Try to gain an understanding of a situation so that you can overcome your fear of it.

This book is available at the NLB.
