I bought this book towards the end of the summer to help our sons, who was then approaching four and a half and three, to relax at bed time and get off to sleep faster than they had been. I haven’t looked back.
Having studied Neuro Linguistic Programming and hypnosis (aspects of both are utilised in the book as well as some guided meditation) I found it facinating. The instructions at the start are well set out to give a quick direction to the reader as to which parts to read firmly and clearly and which parts to read more softly. It also has instructions to the reader of when to yawn. The story is gentle and is about a rabbit called Roger who takes a journey with his mother across a meadow to see a wizard who helps him to sleep.
Reading this to both our sons has proved to be very successful, not just at helping them to relax and prepare to sleep but on a number of occasions they have both fallen asleep before I had finished reading!
I highly recommend it as a book and also the audio download available through the app- Audio is excellent as a ‘treat’ for when you are too tired to read the whole book yourself! As an aside, the audio version sometimes sends my husband to sleep too and I have to wake him up later in the evening!
