Editor Carolyn Graham is not ashamed to admit she was afraid of the dark as a youngster. Of course, she’s over it now, but she could’ve used a a little help from A Light In The Night ($34.95, www.alightinthenight.com), a brand-new board book that comes with a plush “nighttime guardian” to ward off all frights in the night. When kids feel scared, all they have to do is reach for this adorable critter and give its tummy a squeeze. A green glowing light chases away the spookies – and makes you feel brave enough to take on the day. Comes in bubblegum pink, mint green and ice blue.
