Sample Chapter

Joey was a happy little kangaroo who loved to bounce into bed, listen to stories with his baby sister, Jilly, have a big cuddle, and go to sleep with Clarissa, his pet cuscus, and Sammy, his fuzzy green wombat. “Night, night, Joey. Sweet dreams. We love you!” “Night, night.” But, one night Joey had a bad dream. No apples and honey for THREE days. But that’s my favorite dessert! But, one night Joey had a bad dream. Joey bounced straight into his parents’ room. “Mommy, Daddy, I had a terrible dream! The judge said NO apples with honey for three whole days! Why would I have such a bad dream?” “Let’s think about it,” Daddy said. “Dreams are stories we tell ourselves for a reason. We just have to understand the reason. Are you upset about something that happened today?” Joey thought. “Well, I was really mad when Mommy wouldn’t play because she had to feed Jilly.” I wish my baby sister would go away! Mommy cuddled Joey. “You know, all children feel angry when a little sister or brother takes Mommy’s and Daddy’s attention. You can be angry and still love us at the same time! Maybe you were worried about feeling angry. That’s why you told yourself that dream where the judge was punishing you.” Joey nodded. “Hmmm — I see.” “Could you go back to sleep now?” “Yes!” said Joey.
