The Book of Bedtime (Children’s Print Book – U.S. English Edition)
We don’t promise this bedtime story will send your little ones straight off to sleep,
but we do hope it will help encourage them to calm down and relax at bedtime, so that drifting off becomes more of a possibility. In fact, if your young child struggles to settle at night, this book may just make the whole bedtime routine less stressful for both of you.
The first half of the story
talks about what leads up to Ollie, a young rabbit, being wide awake at bedtime. This is intended to allow children to start to think for themselves about what might cause them sleepless nights, and to open up future discussions with their parent or caregiver about how to set up a good bedtime routine, and what it might be helpful to do and to avoid.
And the end of the story? We hope that will be all about a child who is sleeping…your child.
>>> Told in rhyming format, the book is intended to be read aloud by a parent or caregiver at bedtime.
This will allow children to lie down comfortably while they listen to the adult’s voice. Each page is carefully illustrated in calm, muted tones, so that children can enjoy looking at the pictures if they are not yet ready to close their eyes.
>>> Quietening the mind, relaxing, slowing down breathing, and feeling safe and calm
are all encouraged by the text in the second half of the story. Based on simplified “bodyscan meditation” techniques, soothing words are included that will encourage children to concentrate on and relax different parts of their body one at a time. Repeating the story at bedtime will help teach your child this valuable relaxation technique.
>>> Teaching children simple meditation can:
– Help them to sleep better
– Support their emotional development
– Encourage a healthy immune system
– Help them to focus better on their school work
– Promote creative thinking and problem-solving skills
>>> Includes Extra Activities
For extra fun and learning, a few simple Dreamland Puzzles are included after the story.
