Albert and the Amazing Pillow Monsters Review and Giveaway


As many of you know, I have had many issues with Xander sleeping in his own room. Right now, he sleeps in his own bed in my room, mainly because he is still afraid of  "monsters". 

I have tried everything I can..online I read that I could use a "monster spray" to get rid of them..We tried wishing them away..I even tried explaining that monsters are not real...nothing has worked so far..so I was hopeful for this book, about a little boy who overcomes his fear of the dark. 

 

 

 

Albert and the Amazing Pillow Monsters is full of beautiful graphics, and a great story to go along with it. Xander and I read it the first night and I asked him if it helped him want to sleep in his own room..his answer was "no"...BUT he has asked me to read it to him nightly ever since..so I am hopeful that eventually the bravery of "Albert" will pass on to Xander. 

You can purchase Albert and the Amazing Pillow Monsters on Amazon.

  5. I'm having the same problem with my son. Sometimes I just sleep on the floor next to his bed until he falls asleep. It's terrible on my back, but for the most part it works. GL

  10. I never had any issues with my older kids being afraid of the dark. Until a couple of weeks ago, even my 2 year old would go to bed fairly easily. But about 2 weeks ago, he started crying at bedtime and I've had to rock him to sleep... I really hope he outgrows this soon.

  12. The girl I watch has a set of walkie talkies so she knows that her parents or I am always connected to her some way if she needs us. It's helped her anxiety with the darkness a lot!

  14. We gave my son a big flashlight to use at night if he got scared. We also started out by having his lamp on until he fell asleep, then after a few nights of him falling asleep we started turning off the lamp and leaving the closet light on, then the door open with the hall light, and finally just a small nightlight. He learned that his room was still the same whether it was daytime or nighttime. Good luck!
