Summary

Is your child difficult to get to sleep at bed time? Then help is here with The Christmas Monster series

Part of Mary Fern's best-selling Bedtime Series, these books are specially designed to help calm children. They have a wonderful Christmas Holiday theme with Monster helping to choose last minute presents and get them to Santa in time. 

No one really knows what sparks off these feelings of insecurity at night time. They can be triggered by so many different things. 

Mary Fern’s Monster Books are aimed at calming down and reassuring children that they are safe and secure when they are tucked up in their beds. And indeed the Monster Under The Bed is there to look after them and reassure them.

Young minds are full of all the excitement of the day and they are not old enough yet to understand why they feel the way they do. While we associate going to bed and sleeping with rest and relaxation, children can sometimes become stressed and anxious as they are parted from their parents and siblings and worry about being left alone. 

Mary Fern’s ‘Monster Under The Bed Books’ have been carefully written and designed to help anxious children find restful sleep and to part with their fears.

The tone and pace of the book are purposefully set to help a child wind down after an exciting day. The book is full of reassurances and helps them to focus on an inner calm. The Monster is there to hold their hand whenever they need it. The message is a clear one: that even though they might be in their own bedroom, they are never truly alone. The suggestions continue…it might be a story, but the underlying message is that it's sleep time, and that their bed is a cozy safe place to be.

Easy Listening

This book was so easy to listen to, for both me and my son – so I’ll be buying the big bundle next, as it’s even better value for money.

Christmas pictures

My kids love these books so much, they’ve drawn pictures of the Christmas monster and put them on their bedroom walls – great for sparking the kids imagination, rather than looking at the pictures in a book!
