The story was great for a bedtime read aloud. I think it could be used in a curriculum as a lead into things we are scared of that have simple explanations. The illustrations were basic pen or pencil. ( )

The story is about a boy who is afraid of a squeaky door. His Grandma tries to comfort him by continuing to add various animals in bed with him to make him feel safe. Ultimately, the door gets fixed and the boy is no longer afraid. ( )

This is an old story that has been told and retold several times. A squeaky door is keeping a grandmothers grandson awake, but what can she do to help him sleep? ( )

Excellent.
This story has been retold in various languages and associated titles but connects the reader to an issue of importance for childhood development-the dark. Fears of the dark can be an issue in the classroom and at home and the depth of extended family's love and help to overcome fear is an asset in general. By using the grandmother persona/role as a focal point, many current students' families are identified in this book making this selection a good choice and highly beneficial. The elongated texts and use of vibrant color really sets this book apart.

"It's time for bed! Granny tucks Little Boy in tight. She kisses him good night. She turns out the light. And he's not scared! No, not him! But when Granny shuts that door... SQUEEEEAK!

How can a granny keep that spooky, squeaky door from scaring her little boy awake at night?

Acclaimed storyteller Margaret Read MacDonald spins a humorous bedtime story, perfect for reading aloud, with comical illustrations by Mary Newell DePalma."
