Who's Afraid of the Ghost Train? (PagePerfect NOOK Book) 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
GratefulGrandma More than 1 year ago
This is a reissued book from 1989, but it is as relevant now as it was then. Robert has a huge imagination and it usually conjures up scary monsters. He is always looking around for these scary creatures. When he talks to Grandpa Jim about them he gets advice about how to deal with the fear. When Robert and his friends go on the Ghost Ride, he is the only one not frightened as he puts Grandpa's advice to work. A great story to help children deal with fear and imaginary frights like the monsters in the closet or under the bed. Great illustrations. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
