Help Children Get Rid of Nightmares with New Children’s Book

By Penny Luck and Kerri Oransky
In How Zac Got His Z’s: A Guide to Getting Rid of Nightmares, Zachary is plagued by nightmares and is afraid to fall asleep. After sharing his fears with his best friend Maddie, Zac learns the secret to conquering his bad dreams.
Studies estimate that as many as 50% of children ages 3 to 6 have nightmares that disturb the sleep of both parent and child. While some parents are able to comfort their child by reassuring them it was just a dream, for many this isn’t enough. How Zac Got His Z’s: A Guide to Getting Rid of Nightmares may provide just the solution that parents need. This book is based on re-scripting, an intervention author and child therapist Kerri Golding Oransky has used in her practice for years. Her husband, Jason, provided the adorable illustrations.
“I’ve always thought about putting this idea into book form since I’ve seen just how successful it has been with my clients,” says Oransky. “After I married a talented artist, I jumped at the chance to collaborate with him on this book. I think we’ve created a valuable resource for children, parents, and therapists alike.”
Intended to entertain and educate, this 24-page picture book features fun rhymes, engaging illustrations, and drawing pages at the end, so children can begin solving their nightmares issues immediately.
