I love books and my love of books started when I was a child. Books open a portal into another world in which you see other character’s points of view. I think books are actually responsible for making me a very empathetic person. I have been reading to my children since they were born and now they read to themselves- huge thick books that I am surprised by. However, they still love to snuggle up and have me read imaginative story books to them whether short or long. I am happy to partner with TaleBlade Books to spread the word about some imaginative bedtime story books for kids by BCR Fegan.

Don’t Ever Look Behind Door 32 Review
Don’t Ever Look Behind Door 32 is a 32 page fiction story book for kids written by BCR Fegan and illustrated by Lenny Wen. It was just released on March 14, 2018. Don’t Ever Look Behind Door 32 will be available in hardcover, paperback, Kindle and ePub through all major online retailers.
This short story books for kids is a little unusual. It is fun, humorous, and suspenseful. BCR Fegan is a multi-award-winning author and it really shows in his clever, rhyming story that is fun and funny with some rather nice hidden messages.
The book introduces two children in the story to the wondrous Hotel of Hoo and its very unusual occupants. As the children explore the strange hotel, they are invited to experience everything it has to offer with just one warning… don’t ever look behind door 32.
As the occupants of each room are revealed, you see that they are all what you might traditionally think of as scary and yet they are all harmless and helpful. That was one of my daughter’s favorite parts about the book. She liked unusual cast of characters. I felt that it did a great job of helping kids see that things they may be afraid of may not be so frightening after all. She particularly liked the vampire mermaids that help clean up the pool.
My son’s favorite page was the wingless dragons through door 21. They were just so cute!
As you read, you keep receiving reminders not to look behind door 32 and the suspense builds. In fact, my husband who was listening in from the kitchen kept calling out, “What’s behind door 32?”
This imaginative story book for kids is entertaining and cute but it is also educational. It aims introduce children to the patterns of counting in a fun and accessible way. As the rooms are unveiled so are unique objects to count. I always like to ask my kids questions as I finish each page and they race to answer them first. “How many dragons do you see?” “Where is the fairy in the pink dress?
