Shadows on the wall can be fun when you are making them with your hands. . .but when they are unknown it can be a little scary. This is a great story of making the unknown, known, and adding a little humor along the way. Kamyla is an adorable little girl with supportive parents that have a gentle nature. Children will be able to relate to this book, and sleep better in their room at night, knowing they are safe as they identify shadows in the darkness.
Here are some questions to get your minds thinking after you read this book as a family:
1. Has a friend ever told you a story that you didn’t believe? If so, what is a good way to react?
2. Kamyla’s room is really clean, do you keep your room that clean?
3. Which toy on her shelf is your favorite and why?
4. What was your first impression of the exterminator?
5. Kamyla had lots of toys she slept with; do you sleep with something special?
6. Is there anywhere the exterminator didn’t check that you would have?
7. Where did you think the shadows were coming from?
8. Is there something in your room that makes a shadow? It can be a fun game to think about where they come from.
9. Have you ever laid in bed and made your own shadows for fun? Making shadow puppets with your hands can be a fun activity, you can even make up a story or song.
10. What are some other ideas you have to sleep well at night?
This is a great book to solve one of the problems children face when sleeping in their own room. After reading this book pretend to be the exterminator and go into your child’s room and identify the shadows, and where they are coming from. You can always move any of the problem ones that you need to in order to eliminate that issue. Sleeping well is important for the whole house! Kamyla Chung and The Creepy Crawlies has some fun illustrations and the kids will love identifying the shadows.
