Ideas for using this book in classroom or library and/or brief notes on curriculum connections/content learning standards/Common Core, etc.:

  • Discuss fears — are you scared of the dark?  What kind of things keep you or your siblings/friends awake?  What can you do to feel better?  Do your parents do something that help you?
  • For older students: discuss “personification”…how does the author personify Lazlo’s fear of the dark?
