My 7-year-old, 3-year-old and I read this book and really enjoyed it. Here is my 7-year-old's review, in her own words, of "Not a sound, not a peep."

"My favorite is when the bear really did protect the room. It made me sad when she had a nightmare. I like the part when the bear protected the room, and the light shining in her room."

Being a retired teacher, I am always eager to discover new children's books for my own grandson. What a lovely, lilting goodnight story. I'm eager to read this to my little grandson who will surely enjoy it and urge me to read it again and again. Sure to be a favorite among little ones who will admire the pen and ink drawings as much as I did. It's just the right length for young attention spans. Simply adorable.

Review by: Ed Drury on Jan. 2, 2013 :
Nice short little bedtime story with illustrations and simple rhyming cadence very young children should love. This is a nice tool for that special time of childhood when every child just knows it is not safe to be in the dark, at least not safe enough to go to sleep! Cleverly done and richly illustrated, back this book up with a few props like a teddy bear and perhaps a toy angel or figurine and you are well on the way to putting your child's fears around bedtime in the past. I'd say this book is for preschool ages 2 to five or six. Excellent.

This is the perfect short story picture book for Moms and Dads who have young children who are afraid of the dark and have a hard time getting them to sleep -- If you loved the short rhyming stories when you were a kid -- then you and your child will love this rhyme story -- a story of how the bear and the fairy -- are "The Protectors" of young children who are frightened of being in the dark.

A short story written in narrative verse. The author has found a lovely way of explaining to children not to be frightened of the dark. Being a mother myself this is an experience shared and related to, which was enjoyed and easily understood by my children.
