My 2 year old son loves all the Elliot Moose and friend's stories (since we started reading them to him when he was a few months old). He loves to have us read them to him over and over. Recently, he started "reading" them to us! Elliot is such a loving character, that has fun adventures with his friends. These books also have wonderful illustrations we use to teach our son, and have him point out things he knows and learn new words.
Finding That the Night Isn't so Scary
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 15 years ago
In this "Elliot Moose" book, Elliot is scared of strange noises in the night. He hears all sorts of weird noises --- creaking, thumping and swishing. His friends don't take him seriously at first, but then they start to get scared too. Elliot goes to see another friend, Beaverton, who helps him to learn what the noises really are. He and his friends learn that there's nothing to be afraid of. This book reminds me of "Miss Spider: A Listening Walk" and other such stories. The illustrations are soft and this would make a perfect bedtime story. Another wonderful entry in the Elliot Moose series.
Wonderfully written and charmingly illustrated

Elliot Moose is worried when he hears strange noises in his house at night. Elliot's friend Beaverton explains that those noises are simply a loose shutter, floorboard creaks, or the furnace working. Elliot begins to feel much better -- but later that night awakens to a new and scary sound of shuffle, thump, and swish. Beaverton didn't explain these new and frightening noises! Wonderfully written and charmingly illustrated by Andrea Beck, Elliot's Noisy Night is a very highly recommended picture book story about discovering that the scary things that go bump in the night are simply ordinary things when seen in the light.
