Nightmares are terrible no matter what your age, but they’re especially scary for children. We know how to tell ourselves that it was only a dream, but kids haven’t learned that skill yet, so we need to teach them nightmare coping skills. What’s a good way to do that? The same way we teach our kids many other things: with books. Storybooks about nightmares can show your children that they’re not alone in their fear of the dark, nighttime noises, and scary dreams. These books can also help the child to see the power of positive thinking over dwelling on the negative – which is a life skill that everyone can benefit from. Here are 16 storybooks about nightmares to soothe your little sweetie so all of you can sleep better!
