Format: Paperback
I enjoyed this book myself (a 40-yr-old with no children), and had my 7-yr-old nephew read it to me when he visited. He found it easy enough to read and understand at the same time, but with just enough challenge. Franklin is a delightful turtle who faces everyday things, like being afraid of small, dark places. As he looks for help, he discovers that other friends have fears of everyday things as well. Very sensitively written, humor appropriate for 4- to 8-year-olds.

Format: Hardcover
Nearly all small children are afraid of the dark at some point, and parents may struggle to understand why. Franklin in the Dark is informative for both children and parents, and helps young children learn that it is okay to be scared, and that there are things you can do about it. Besides helping children relieve their fears about the dark, Franklin shows children-and adults-that everyone has different fears that others might find strange-even your own mother!

This was my first and it still is my very favourite Franklin book. I had an autographed copy when the grandchildren were growing up - in one of our moves, I lost my copy of this book. When I saw the 25th Anniversary copy available, I just had to have it to pass on down through the family. I am 80 and I still love the Franklin stories.

Franklin is afraid of sleeping in his shell at night. This is every kid's problem being afraid of the dark. So Franklin goes on a trip looking for help, but finds out everybody is afraid of something. It lets the kids know it's ok to be afraid, but also tries to help him overcome being afraid too. The perfect book for a preschooler.
