Title: Sweet Dreams: Bedtime Visualizations for Kids*
Contributors: Mariam Gates and Leigh Standley (Illustrated by)
Ages 4-8 years
An illustrated picture book for ages 4–8, Sweet Dreams gives children imaginative visualizations and guided breathing and body movement to help them achieve a restful night’s sleep.
This book includes eight visualizations that help kids slow down, breathe, and become aware of their bodies so they can relax into a good night’s sleep. Whether they are envisioning flying a kite, making it rain, or rocketing to the moon, Sweet Dreams offers guided narratives that will spark their imaginations, as well as breathing techniques that encourage restful relaxation. Inspired by the Cloud Journey Visualization at the end of Good Night Yoga, which has been very popular with readers, Sweet Dreams offers proven techniques to help children calm down and settle both physically and mentally so they can enjoy a good night’s rest.
Visualizations include Shrinking Down, Blowing Bubbles, Rocketing to the Moon, Making It Rain, Galloping Through a Meadow, Diving Underwater, Flying a Kite, and Bedtime Breathing.
