Overview

Nobody Needs to be afraid of the dark.

Poor Griffin. Every night when he turns out the lights, his room turns as black as a starless sky. He tries to be brave, but his toes curl up and his hands grow cold and his heart beats fast and his legs turn to jelly.

Can someone take away the shakes and the shivers and the quakes and the quivers? Is there anybody big enough to keep him safe?

Tenderly written to help calm children’s fears, this delightfully illustrated tale reassures children that they are not alone in feeling afraid of the dark and offers them this comforting promise: “God’s perfect love takes away fear” (1 John 4:18).

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Young Griffin doesn't like the dark. Every night the dark "made his toes curl up/ and his hands grow cold/ and his heart beat fast/ and his legs turn to jelly." So Griffin turns on every light in his room and snuggles up with his teddy bear. When his mother calls to him to turn out the lights, Griffin longs to have someone stay with him so he won't be afraid of the dark. His mother tells him that God, who is bigger than either Griffin's mother or father, "can fit in your room, fit in your bed, fit in you!" That night Griffin feels God's presence in his room and sleeps peacefully, no longer afraid of the dark. Munger's soft, fuzzy watercolors feature undefined characters that don't serve the text. Higgs The Sunflower Parable weaves Bible verses into the story to remind children of God's presence. Ages 2-6. Oct.
