When it comes to bedtime, fears or worries are very common in children – especially children with a vivid imagination! There might be monsters in their bedroom, noises outside the window, or other worries that stop them getting to sleep. Learning to manage these fears and worries is really helpful for children and their families.
This book is a fun way to help children worry less at the start of the night by focusing on the power of positive imagination. Parents can help children also worry less by listening to their worries and then gently reassuring them that many of their worries are not real – there are no monsters under the bed!
But if your child has persistent worries, check out A Beach in the Bedroom which can help older children use visual imagery and relaxation strategies to calm their worries at bedtime. And check out our website for advice on rewards, more tips, and any other sleep help you need.

Based on over two decades of research, these books are here to help your child (and you) manage some common sleep problems children have.There’s loads of advice out there about how to help children sleep, and at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute in Melbourne, Australia, we pride ourselves on generating and sharing the advice you need based on evidence and research. This advice is now captured in the Kip books.
This series of six books is all about the common sleep problems in children, how your child can help themselves tackle them, and how you can manage them. Most are what we call ‘behavioural’ sleep problems (like getting to sleep, waking up overnight or waking up early).
As a paediatrician and researcher, I have seen over my 20 year journey, how much of an impact poor sleep in babies and children had on them as well as their parents. I met so many parents who were desperate for a good night’s sleep! So I hope you find this book fun and helpful, for you, your child, your family and your friends.
Enjoy and sleep well | Prof Harriet Hiscock
