Bedtime Tricks (That Really Work!) for Kids
by Tzivia Gover; Lesléa Newman
This cheerfully illustrated book addresses kids directly. It offers many excellent suggestions for ways to get to sleep with better routines and projects. Just a few of these include creating an appealing journal and writing in it; making a bed seem cozy and inviting; swapping plugs for pages (yes!) and many more. Some of these use mindfulness techniques as, for example, gratitude and breathing practices.
This book could perhaps best be read by an adult and child together. The adult encouragement will be helpful as will the adult’s enthusiasm about a child working on some of the projects. Many of these involve arts and crafts.
This book is an excellent one for helping children to sleep better. Definitely wish that I had this one when my kids were young. By the way, some of these suggestions will also be helpful to adults.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Storey publishing for this title. All opinions are my own.
