Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.   

How often do you think about your bedtime routine?   

Almost half of people in Britain say they're kept awake at night due to worry and stress - so making time to switch off in the hour before bed is more important than ever.   

Penguin Sleep Tales are 10 specially designed descriptive audio tales to help you wind down and relax before you drift off.  

Developed with The Sleep Council, each track will transport you to a different location, encouraging you to visualise calming settings and landscapes to ease away the day's anxiety or worry and get you in the right frame of mind for sleep.  

Lie in a hammock on a tropical beach, relax by a campfire or shelter from a distant thunderstorm. These mindful tales are read slowly and soothingly, accompanied by relaxing sounds of nature.

One has been specially designed to appeal to those with auto sensory meridian response (ASMR), a physical reaction to sound which can be particularly relaxing.  

Create a focused, peaceful environment so you can get a deep, natural night's sleep and wake up refreshed in the morning. The perfect de-stressor after a long day.  

Penguin Sleep Tales are designed exclusively for audiobook apps. Clearly labelled for easy navigation, each track is 15 minutes long, so you can put your sleep timer on for any duration with no need to return to the screen. So dim the lights, and get ready for a good night's rest.   

Includes 10 relaxing tales: 'Wakarango Mai', 'Hammock on a Distant Shore', 'The Purring Temple', 'Pegasus in the Night Sky', 'Dancing Flames', 'A Bothy in a Storm', 'The Warm Smell of Hay', 'Travel on the Overnight Train', 'The Magic Bookshop' (ASMR story) and 'Yara's Song' (inspired by the Brazilian folk tale 'The Story of Yara').   

The Sleep Council offered information and advice around the development of this product. Search for 'Ladybird Sleepy Tales' and 'Puffin Sleepy Tales' to see our collections for children.

Brilliantly read

These 15 min tales are fantastic. They are read in a beautiful way and each one is 15 mins. I'm normally asleep by the end of 1. Soothing, calming, imaginative,.... What's not to love.
Asmr in storytelling
