Summary

"A refreshing way to guide your kids to dreamland."

Kids grow up in an increasingly noisy world, with entertainment being available at any time of the day. 

We all love to see our kids happy, but it’s hard to protect them from devices screaming for attention, draining their imagination. 

This book helps children to reconnect to their quiet imagination - creating a moment of calmness, making kids more relaxed and less anxious. 

These bedtime meditations are a collection of dreamy, visualizing stories. 

They’re taking children on a magical journey to find where rainbows start, to make their own constellation or to meet a unicorn made of ice. 

These stories include basic mindfulness techniques such as being attentive to your breath, identifying body sensations, and actively feeling grateful and loving. 

This book will help kids relax and guide them to a good night’s sleep. 

Our audiobook version comes with music and sound effects composed specifically for this book. This transforms it into an unforgettable experience.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Lovely

Kids (3 & 5) like listening to this while they fall asleep - only problem is it sends me to sleep too while I’m doing their bed time!

Recommend !

The only problem I have with this book is that it’s not meant for my wife and me. We listen to it together with our children and don’t want to get up afterwards :D But they must’ve read our minds because they’re making something for grown-ups too (read it on their website) We’re waiting !

Great intro to mindfulness for kids!

We added this audiobook to our bedtime routine and won't go back. Two boys (6yrs and 9yrs) who both have adhd. Prior to this we had lots of behavior issues through the day and bedtime was a nightmare until the melatonin kicked in and now we are even melatonin free. We do one story every night together and follow along with breathing and using our super hearing. These stories and guided meditations are perfect for kids!

Terrible

Seriously not good, in the forest story are you here is water before it’s explained, and the underwater one there’s way too much action etc. etc.

Sanity Saver

Works like a charm for all three of my kids ages ranging from almost 2 years old to almost 8 years old. We play it on the Amazon Echo in their bedroom and nap and bed time are so much easier. As an adult I even enjoy it!

Great basic meditation story for kids

Helps kids get to sleep. I put it on when my grandkids are spending the night.
