Mika the Bear Is Afraid of the DarkBook - 2016
This beautifully illustrated tale of a little bear confronting his fear of the dark will inspire children to do just the same--and turn off the light!
The longest night of the year is fast approaching and Mika is terrified. As the sun goes down, the dancing shadows, whistling wind, and other hisses and crisses all become too much for this little polar bear.
But this year, his cousin will help him confront every single fear, one by one. Will Mika get over them?
