Mommy, Daddy, I Had a Bad Dream! by Martha Pieper, PhD - 2012 Sharp Writ Book Awards Winner: Children

From the Sharp Writ Book Award judges:

  • This is a very perceptive book written for young children. It explains how to turn the experience of bad dreams into something that helps a child grow mentally in terms of figuring how why the bad dream happened. 
  • This is a wonderful book, contains excellent art work, and an interesting tool. My young audience was fully drawn in while having the book read to them. I have no negative thoughts about this work, nor did my young audience. 
  • Really good advice written in a way even kids can understand. I wish my parents had this book when I was young.
