#52 – A Bedtime Kiss for Chester Raccoon by Audrey Penn

4 stars

What child has not feared monsters under the bed?  Chester Raccoon is no different.  When he goes to bed in the afternoon, the sun is up, and it throws shadows against the floor and walls of his bedroom.  Chester thinks these shadows are animals that could harm him.  He cannot go to sleep, just as your child cannot when the monster fear arises.  Mrs. Raccoon gives Chester a gentle kiss.  This simple reminder that he is loved, helps Chester calm his fears and sleep.

This board book will help little ones who fear those monsters, but they will not fear the book.  The scary animals in Chester’s room are not at all scary.  The spiders have smiles and look silly in the outfits they wear.  This story will gently help your child deal with the monsters in his room without scaring or causing more demons.  It is also a great way to introduce Chester Raccoon into your child’s story time.  They will love all Chester and his pals.  The illustrations are soft and gentle, just like the story.  Chester Raccoon is cute and lovable.  A Bedtime Kiss for Chester Raccoon is a wonderful bedtime story for the younger set.

  1. Hey, I genuinely like your site. I was wondering if you utilised a web designer or should you created this web-site yourself. Excellent job.
