There's a Nightmare in My Closet


by Mercer Mayer
Ages 4-7

Childhood fears of nightmares are confronted in this humorous story. A little boy faces his nightmare, which is hiding in his closet, and to his delight, he finds it isn't so scary, after all! This book shows children the power of imagination and exaggeration. We think it is a must-read for children!
