Ron Sleeps Alone - a bookwrap

  Sometimes it can be very scary for your child to learn to sleep alone.  The  night shadows,  the pitch-black darkness,  the unfamiliar noises and just lying there wide awake can cause anxiety and fear to your little one as he tries to cope with his aloneness in his own bed.  If you have a child you probably will be able to relate to today's featured book...


Authored by S. Adler and illustrated by Abira Das

Perfect for ages 3-7

Unwrapping some illustrations for you...

About the book...

This wonderful book is about a little boy named Ron who is frightened to sleep alone.  It is written in rhyme and the illustrations are amazing.  The colours and expressions of the characters deeply enrich the text.   Dad reads his little boy a bedtime story then tries to exit his room ...

"Good night Ron, " said Dad, "dream of good things,
Sleep well so you'll be rested for what a new day brings."

Every time Dad tries to leave the room Ron has another request.  He keeps asking his dad to bring him his teddy, his bunny rabbit, his broken train, his soccer ball, and even his red bicycle.  Dad is getting short tempered with Ron because he has had a long day and needs to rest himself.  

Are all his toys heaped in his bed the winning combination to get him to finally fall asleep and feel comforted?  

"There wasn't enough room on the pillow for his head,
Teddy Bear and Bunny took up most of the bed.
That big ball kept moving and rolling around,
The broken train was making a creaking sound."

Ron realizes this won't work, he is too crowded, so he calls on dear old Dad to save the day.  How does Dad make everything right and solve the problem so Ron can finally close his eyes and get a good night's sleep?  You will have to get the book and find out.  Dad becomes a super hero!

This is a perfect bedtime story and I am sure kids (and parents) will be able to relate, enabling everyone in the family to slumber on.....
