Publisher's Summary

Why doesn't your child listen to you when it's time to go to sleep? Is it a battle every night to try to be calm while going to bed? His dinosaur friends will help you and your son to leave everything out of the room and enter a world of peace before sleeping.

Is your child wild about dinosaurs? No one quite understands why so many kids go through a “dinosaur phase.”  It may be because they are extinct and although they may have been huge and hungry, they are harmless to a child since they no longer exist. These mysterious and powerful creatures interest many children and are a fun and exciting way to introduce relaxation, mindfulness and meditation. There is nothing as powerful as this to help refocus, regulate and relax the human brain.

The benefits of mindfulness and meditation are many. You may notice any or all of the following:

  • Increased self-awareness
  • Increased confidence
  • Willingness to embrace challenges
  • Increased stamina and perseverance
  • Decreased anxiety
  • Improved positive mood
  • Improved social skills
  • Better communication

Here you will find 22 engaging stories to help you begin this journey with the children in your life. Nightly reading time as part of the bedtime ritual, helps kids sort through some of their anxieties and relax for a high quality, restful sleep. There are stories for many personalities contained in this book. Your child might especially enjoy the guided meditations or the fact-based, informational tales. Experience a Triceratops camp out or find out all about a Stretchosaur. Listen as Daisy makes an unexpected friend or follow the flight of the ancient dragonfly. Explore together and start a lasting bedtime relaxation ritual.

The key meditation elements that have been incorporated into this book are:

  • Breathing (awareness of the breath)
  • Body scanning (awareness of tension in different parts of the body)
  • Mind scaping (thought awareness without evaluation)
  • Wind down (freeing the mind)

Getting in touch with feelings and emotions, knowing our bodies, and encouraging discussion are all important parts of connecting with your child. A child who can accept their feelings and emotions without criticism or judgment is a more emotionally healthy human. The emphasis on self-acceptance through mindfulness can significantly raise self-esteem.

In the world today, rates of anxiety in children have increased at an alarming rate because of fast-paced schedules, pressures at school, and less time spent playing outdoors. Taking time together enjoying the stories in this book can help to bring about an overall calm. These moments of awareness of our bodies, breathing and environment can have a major effect on both you and your child.

“Teaching your child to stay in the present moment through mindfulness and meditation affects the quality and richness of life in a positive way and, since the present moment is all we have, this reduces the overall anxiety brought on by focus on the past or nervous anticipation of the future. How wonderful to help your child learn to quiet the mind and enjoy restful and rejuvenating sleep.”

This book is the perfect

Great story book! Many stories are classic stories from my youth and some I've never heard before. The illustrations are great but I'm not sure how well the binding will hold up, but it looks great and is an excellent deal.

Informative

These 'bedtime' stories are actually short, visualization/relaxation scenarios for children. You can listen them to children to help them relax before bed or just to calm down/slow down and be mindful.
