I love flashlights.
The world looks different when viewed through this concentrated beam of light. The unknown is revealed and shadows are dispelled.
My summer camping trip included several nighttime adventures and excursions with my powerful little battery-operated beacon.
A favorite childhood activity for the grandchildren involved taking "treasure hunts" around the house with a flashlight. They loved discovering and uncovering things which escaped their notice during daylight.
This brings us to Bob: a boy with a flashlight.
However, he has his own special companion to help banish his fears. Not a teddy bear, a favorite book, nor a special blanket. It's a flashlight.
Hurray for Bob and his trusty flashlight!
