Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite All About A Boy Who Was Afraid of the Dark: And How He Got Over It is a storybook for children, grades k-3, written by Ann Marie Hannon. Patrick was accustomed to waking up when it was sunny or, at least, light outside. He'd be able to smell the delicious breakfast his mom was cooking, and his big sister, Margy, would probably threaten to eat his breakfast if he didn't hurry up. But this time, it was different. He could tell that it was the 12th day of the 12th month, but it was dark outside; there were no smells of breakfast cooking, and no one else was awake. It frightened him. He didn't know what had gone wrong that there should be darkness in the morning, and 12 am was, after all, the morning. The more he thought about it, the more upset, frightened and confused he became. There was nothing more to do, he decided, than to have a good cry about it. He lowered his brow, stuck out his lip, and let out a pitiful wail. Margy came rushing in, and she explained, in a very simple way, why Patrick would never have to be afraid of the dark again. Ann Marie Hannon's storybook for children, grades k-3, All About A Boy Who Was Afraid of the Dark: And How He Got Over It is a simple and beautiful story about a frightened child and his big sister who makes everything all right again. Hannon includes lively and colorful illustrations that make the story come alive. While geared toward primary school-aged readers, this is a grand book for story time as it explains the darkness to children in an unusually perceptive and rational way. All About A Boy Who Was Afraid of the Dark: And How He Got Over It will warm the hearts of young readers and those adults lucky enough to read along with them. It's highly recommended.
