Houston, TX, November 19, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Future educator Alicia Lloyd’s new book When the Monsters Are Quiet will help children become more proficient readers while easing their bedtime fears. “The inspiration for the book truthfully came from my own experience,” Lloyd said. “I was sleeping in a different place and hearing all kinds of unfamiliar noises. My boyfriend later asked me how I slept, and I told him ‘eventually, when the monsters were quiet.’”
Published by Halo Publishing International, (http://www.halopublishing.com) When the Monsters Are Quiet offers helpful hints for parents to improve reading and calm their child’s fears of darkness. “Alicia Lloyd took a common fear and created a story that will help children face it while also improving their reading proficiency,” said Halo Publisher Lisa Umina.
Lloyd said When the Monsters Are Quiet is a friendly book that will help children realize there are just different noises in the dark, not monsters. The story’s main character is a young boy modeled after Lloyd’s younger brother Zachary, now 13. “He had those big blue eyes and space pajamas,” said the author.
Lloyd said she has wanted to be a teacher since she was a young child. She attended a Teacher Academy while still in high school and after graduation earned an Associate’s Degree in Education from Delaware County Community College in Pennsylvania. Presently, Lloyd is in her senior year at West Chester University of Pennsylvania where she is working towards her Bachelor’s Degree in Early Grades Preparation (pre-Kindergarten through fourth grade) and Special Education. She has a strong passion for working with children and is employed as a preschool teacher at Nottingham Country Daycare in Nottingham, Pennsylvania- very close to where she resides in Oxford, Pennsylvania. Lloyd said she has always enjoyed writing and hopes to publish other books in the future.
