Award-Winning ABC News Veteran Launches Literary Treasures Certain to Conquer Sleep Fears
Every child will be asking to go to bed so they can listen to the heartwarming magic that takes place throughout the pages of Dream Grabber and Dream Jumper, two new companion pieces from Emmy Award-Winning ABC TV Producer and Writer, John R. Green. The all-too-familiar bedtime struggle is certain to subside, as Green creates a fanciful and safe world where a heroic father has the ability to defeat nightmares for his son and jump into dreams to embark on fantastical journeys with his daughter.
“Dream Grabber is a charming and delightful bedtime story, beautifully validating a universal childhood fear rather than dismissing it,” says Kim Bergman, Ph.D., Licensed Psychologist. Each book encourages nurturing bedtime routines and helps children understand that dreamland should be an enjoyable and secure place to be.
In Dream Grabber, a loving father shows his little boy how to overcome his fear of going to sleep by sharing his secret ability to grab bad dreams and replace them with beautiful ones that float invisibly in the air. In Dream Jumper, a little girl, who deeply dreads being alone in her dreams, is comforted by her father when he reveals that he has magical powers allowing him to jump into her dreams while they are both asleep. She imagines him flying on a unicorn and sliding down rainbows into a pool of teddy bears.
Good Morning America Co-Anchor Robin Roberts shares, “Dream Jumper will have you jumping for joy! Such a heartwarming read with beautiful illustrations.” While Lori Greiner, Inventor, Entrepreneur and Co-Host on ABC-TV’s Shark Tank proclaims, “I just adore Dream Grabber and its companion book Dream Jumper. John R. Green has brilliantly created two wonderful books that turn bedtime and dreaming into a magical worry-free time for kids…a must for every home!”
The first kids’ books written by John R. Green, Dream Grabber and Dream Jumper also happen to be based on bedtime rituals he created to help his own two children face their fears upon falling asleep. Both books are now available for presale through Amazon and will officially be released at Barnes & Noble and Amazon on November 10, through Archway Publishing, a division of Simon & Schuster.
