What do you do if you have a young child who constantly wakes up in the night worried about noises that they hear? 

 Well, if you are Pottstown High School teacher Marilyn Bainbridge, you use your writing skills and become the author of a child’s literature book entitled “What Was That Sound?”

Bainbridge, who has three children of her own, was inspired to write the book to help one of her children who was a particularly light sleeper and would constantly wake up worried about noises in the night.

“I enjoy writing to express myself and entertain others. I saw this as an opportunity to help other parents address the problem of noises in the night,” said Bainbridge. 

 “Children’s literature has always been a topic that interested me and the book gave me a chance to express myself and hope to bring joy into the lives of little ones,” stated Bainbridge.

The 24-page illustrated book follows the adventure of one curious child who is awakened during the night and sets out to find out what was that sound.

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the story is also available in eBook form. For more details, go to:
