Gently assuring children that all is well, this soothing bedtime tale helps children increase their awareness of, and comfort with, what goes on around them as they sleep. Through whimsically illustrated questions -- Is my heart still beating? Does my hair still grow? What will the frogs do if it starts to rain? Are the fairies peeking from under the posies? -- the dark night becomes a mystical and spiritual place, and children have an opportunity to expand their senses beyond themselves and consider that which they might not have before. Grown-ups can also use this story as the impetus to start a dialog on other questions or even fears children might have about the night-time.
