Who among us wasn’t afraid of nightmares hiding in the closet? I certainly was, and wish I had this book when I was little. A little boy decides to confront his nightmare when it emerges from the closet; he waits for it with a toy gun. He frightens the nightmare, who begins to cry, and then the little boy has to comfort the nightmare. He tucks him in bed with him and they go to sleep.

Illustrations by Mercer Mayer are adorable, and make the nightmare into a believably scary thing at first, but then just a cute cuddly monster who is very much like the boy, needing reassurance.

The wonderful message is that everything is not always what it seems, and sometimes what or who we are scared of might be just as scared of us. When the unknown becomes known, our whole idea of the world can change. ( )

In this book, the child was scared of the monster in his closet and he overcame these fears. The closing of the door to me is a comparison to how we hide our fears in life instead of facing them head-on. The boy gains confidence and he stands up for himself I think this is an important lesson that is portrayed in this story. It can also teach not to judge a person or thing by appearance; they can be different then you expect, just as the friendly monster at the end of the story. The emotions of the characters are shown in the ending as smiles on their faces. ( )

In my option I liked, the book “There’s A Nightmare In My Closet”, because the book is funny and pulls a slight twist at the end of the book. The book’s beginning grabs the reader’s attention with the narrator stating, ‘There was something in my closet”. I liked how the author ‘shows’ how scary the monster is, without actually showing it. The author uses the narrator, the young boy, to show how the monster is fighting the child. Readers become curious as to what this unseen monster looks like. A twist comes in near the end of the book, after the boy has drawn the monster out of the closet. Instead of the boy being frightened of the monster, the monster fears the boy. I liked this twist, because it is both funny and unexpected it. Monsters are not usually associated with being afraid of humans. I enjoyed the ending of the book, as the boy had to calm the monster down, so that it’s crying wouldn’t wake up his parents. It was a surprise to find that the boy was more worried about his parents waking up, then a monster laying in his bed. Overall, I ended this book from beginning to end. ( )

A young boy has a nightmare living in his closet. In the book, he waits for his nightmare to come out of the closet and tells him to go away. His nightmare starts crying and the boy makes friends with his nightmare. In the end he allows him to sleep in bed with him but says that if there is another nightmare in his closet he has no more room in his bed.

This book can be used as a read aloud with k-2 and an activity to follow about making connections can follow because all students have fears they can talk about. They could either draw or write about them in order to make the connection to the story. This book can also be used with the first graders to talk about sequencing, beginning, middle, and end, because there are very distinct parts to the story and it would be a good book for students to demonstrate their learning.
