Go Away, Dark Nightby Liz Curtis Higgs
Synopses & Reviews
The darkness can be scary. But nobody needs to be afraid of the dark. That’s the encouraging message in Go Away, Dark Night, the newest children’s book by Liz Curtis Higgs (author of the best-selling Parable series: The Pumpkin Patch Parable, The Parable of the Lily, The Sunflower Parable, and The Pine Tree Parable).
Go Away, Dark Night is the story of a young boy named Griffin who is afraid of the dark. Every night when he turns out the lights, his room turns as black as a starless sky. Griffin tries to be brave, but his toes curl up and his hands grow cold and his heart beats fast and his legs turn to jelly. If only someone could help him!
Is there anybody big enough to keep him safe? Can anyone take away the shakes and the shivers and the quivers? Parents and children alike will find out what Griffin learns in this heart-warming modern children’s classic, carefully crafted to help young children place their trust in the Lord.
Nobody Needs to be afraid of the dark.
Poor Griffin. Every night when he turns out the lights, his room turns as black as a starless sky. He tries to be brave, but his toes curl up and his hands grow cold and his heart beats fast and his legs turn to jelly.
Can someone take away the shakes and the shivers and the quakes and the quivers? Is there anybody big enough to keep him safe?
Tenderly written to help calm children’s fears, this delightfully illustrated tale reassures children that they are not alone in feeling afraid of the dark and offers them this comforting promise: “God’s perfect love takes away fear” (1 John 4:18).
