There's a Fighter in My Room

By Megan Kjarbo

Loved it! 😍

Who can save Matthew from the fighter in his room so he can go to sleep?

Synopsis

It's bedtime, but there is something in Matthew's room that is keeping him from falling asleep. He keeps trying to ask for help, but no one understands what he is saying. Who will help him? Find out who rolls up their sleeves to help Matthew fall asleep.

Matthew is afraid to go to sleep because there is a fighter in his room. First, he asks his big brother to help him, but he cannot help because he says he is too small. Then his father cannot help him because he has to take out the garbage. Hopefully his mother can help him, she is the only one left to come to his rescue.


This is a cute bedtime story. The fear of a “monster” in the bedroom is real for some children. By reading about it, children may be comforted in the fact that someone they love can help them if they are afraid. There is a Fighter in My Room has a surprise ending that younger children will enjoy.


This is definitely “a read to me” story for preschoolers.  Some of the words are too difficult for early readers to read themselves, such as “approached” and “cautiously”. But that being said, it is a great way to introduce words to expand their vocabulary.


The illustrations are delightfully adorable, they bring the words alive for children and the adults that read to them. I recommend this book for young children. Especially those that have trouble going to sleep at night.
