Summary

Mary Fern’s Monster Under My Bed series of stories is aimed at calming down and reassuring children 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 audiobooks have been carefully authored and designed to help anxious children find restful sleep and to part with their fears.

The tone and pace of the audiobook are purposefully set to help a child wind down after an exciting day. The audiobook 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.

Good narration

The narrator is ideal for children, taking the time to give the characters individual voices. A mild mid west accent makes it an easy listen.

Great for Grandparents

When you need a break audio books for children can be an ideal way to settle them down either for a nap or as a bedtime story.

Good Selection of Stories

There are twenty individual stories in this pack, all Christmas related. There’s over seven hours in this pack so it’s good value as well.

Moving to a Big Bed

We had problems when my son moved from his cot and into a big proper bed. I think he felt lost in the vastness of it. These helped to calm him down at nightime quite well.

Monster Books

There are quite a few in the series and my son really likes these. The monsters all get together each night and play a different game while making sure the sleeping child is safe in their beds.
