Nyctophobia, or fear of the dark, is one of the most common phobias in children.
With the time change for fall back, come the dark, now earlier than ever. I don’t like it when it gets dark where I live at 4:30 at night either! I hope these picture books help with fear of the dark. I love how there are so make different and original takes on the dark and how to make it less scary for kids in these ten picture books. Which ones are your favorites? Let’s add them to the list! Thank you!
