Hush, Baby Ghostling is a children’s picture book targeted for 2-5 years, relaying a mother ghost trying to put her baby ghostling to bed for the morning.
With a bit of a switch, this was clever using ghosts as a bedtime story for the things that would go bump in the daytime while they sleep, as opposed to kids and fears at night. A great way to make children less afraid. The illustrations were phenomenal and the story was told in a poetic rhyme format beautifully.
A recommended 5 star must read!
