    This book by Martha Heineman Pieper, Ph.D. is very insightful


    This book by Martha Heineman Pieper, Ph.D. is very insightful and helpful to parents. When Joey has a string of bad dreams it shows his mom and dad responding to him very lovingly and compassionately. It also models how Joey’s parents try to help him understand the feelings behind those bad dreams. Parents get to see how they can help their own children when they have a bad dream as well. Meanwhile the children listening to the story are both entertained and soothed by it. I loved the characters in the story and thought it was really clever to have them be animals that seem to be indigenous to Australia. I know that children will be enchanted and intrigued by them too. I recommend this book to anyone who knows children who have suffered from scary dreams.

    Say Goodnight to Bad Dreams!

    Talk about helpful! My two little ones, ages 9 and 5, are thrilled with Dr. Pieper's fun and meaningful story about Joey, the lovable little kangaroo who seeks comfort from his parents when he has a bad dream. We really like how the kangaroo parents are portrayed as loving and certain about exploring and undertanding Joey's feelings. Joey learns from the ones he loves most how to better understand his bad dreams and what they're really all about. We spend a good deal of time looking for age-appropriate stories that our kids feel help us to better understand what is relevant in their lives, these are the ones they like the best! We know this book is a winner because they want to hear it over and over again, especially the part where Joey gives his dad a high five in the morning because he was able to figure out why he had a bad dream the previous night, happily go back to sleep and then have a good dream. If you want a long term solution to empower your kids to better understand their feelings behind their bad dreams, get this book and you'll get some sleep too!
