——I only wish that message would have been attached to the book and I would have seen it before I read it!!!
As a preschool teacher I’m usually the one to read the children a story before nap time. This usally helps them calm down a bit so that they can rest. Today was different though, The book I chose wasn’t the best one for me to choose for this particular audience. I guess it was a little too scary for one of my students. As soon as I read the book I left to go on my lunch break. Not 5 min later I recieved a call on my cell phone due to a child crying uncontrollably with the fear of dying. When I told him that he wouldn’t die unless he tried to swallow a horse (must read book to understand!) he told me that he was afraid that he was going to dream that he swallowed a horse and that he would die. I tried to calm his fears the best I could. WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT????
