Shadows on My WallHow many of us remember seeing shadows on the wall when we were younger and being scared of what they could belong to? Well, that very idea is addressed in Timothy Young's picture book Shadows on My Wall.

I know as a child with an over active imagination (um, that child turned into an adult with the same problem), I would always imagine scary scenes in the dead of night. I was convinced on numerous occassions that a blood-thirsty bobcat had entered my room to eat me. Obviously that ended up being wrong, but it was still frightening as a kid! I really liked how the idea of the unknown is addressed in a kid-friendly way. The little boy in the book has the same fears that so many of us have had as wee ones and learns to change his perception.

Instead of being scared by what might be behind that shadow, he learns to take control. He scares away an angry robot and makes friends with a dangerous dragon. The little boy's lesson is a great one to share with small children that face the fear of sleeping alone.
