ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a study of children who are afraid of the dark conducted by researchers led by Isabel Santacruz. Children included in the study were randomly assigned to three groups. One group used the book "Uncle Lightfoot," which tells how the main character learns to be brave in the dark by playing games. The study showed improvements in children. It also concluded that playing some games can help alleviate children's fear of the dark.
