"Can't get your terrified kids off to sleep? Snuggle up, imagine that your body is made of jelly and breathe in and out to the ethereal music and Christiane Kerr¿s dulcet tones. Although the second of the three tracks is an adventure in space, the aliens are friendly and the wonders of the planets are entrancing. By the Sea offers no pirates, just soothing water and building a sandcastle with whorled cockleshells. Snowflake is probably equally soothing, but I was fast asleep by then." (The Times)
I only joined audible yesterday and this was one of the first two CD's I bought. When I downloaded it, I never thought that it would work this wonderfully with my Kids.
I am a mother of four kids,11 years old girl,9 years old boy ,6 years old boy and 3 months old baby girl.The eldest three are very active and bed time is simply a daily nightmare for me with them.I really feel exhausted by the time I get them to sleep after that much of shouting and screeming when soft talk doesn't work.I have always run out of ideas to get them to sleep and it even got worse when I had to come to UK this year for my further studies because the flat I am living in is too small for them compared to the one we had back home.Changing the environment has made them even more excited about their school, their friends and their activities not to mention the nice city we live in in Scotland to the extent that going to sleep became such a difficult time for both of us.
We usually have fun in every thing we do throughout the day except the bedtime.I feel very upset after having to shout at them to take me seriously about going to bed especially that I know that these memories last for life.Yesterday I came across this CD and decided to give it a try.I have just finished playing it to them and for the first time in years I have had a nice wonderful bedtime with them listening to the CD.They have loved it soo much that they kissed me for it and begged me to make it part of their everyday bedtime rituals.I was so happy that I have decided to write the review right away for the mothers who have the same problem as I used to have.It really works wonders as I equally enjoyed it with them.
I got this for my little girl who is four to listing to after we have read to her and had her songs but at first i lay beside her and listen with her it was very relaxing and we both fell asleep to it, she doesn't have it every night but she really enjoys it when she does and sometimes i lay with her and enjoy it too so if you are looking for somthing that can help you kids get to sleep this is great and you can also enjoy it too. happy relaxing
This is an excellent introduction to meditation for children but spoilt by very poor sound quality. Even when downloaded in the format E it is only 64kbps. The tracks have meditation sounds and audio and are not just spoken word, resulting in distractingly poor audio quality. I would pay the extra £2 and buy it in CD format...
The meditations are read so beautifully that I also enjoy listening to them with my daughter. A great little audiobook for active children that need a help winding down...
