Publisher's Summary

Are you too stressed out? Are you struggling to have a good night's sleep? 

Adult life is stressful. Adults juggle responsibilities, relationships, debts, balance checkbooks like walking on a tightrope, and have to put dinner on the table every night! 

Parents have even more stress providing for their children. What is a stressed-out adult to do? 

The first thing is to get a good night’s sleep, something often so elusive it is like chasing a dream! 

But in these stories, the dreams come to us, and sweep us away to places and times we may have forgotten, or only think we have forgotten until the magic takes hold of us again. 

Join Jenny and her daughter as they explore the Dreamtime adventures of Jaina, a young woman whose restful nighttime scenes transform from summer to winter, sea to sky, the night today. 

Jaina meets the many denizens of the dreaming world and joins them as her tales blend fantasy with reality, painting vivid pictures to help you drift away into the sweet embrace of sleep. 

Bedtime Stories for Stressed-Out Adults eases the stress of the day by returning to the most basic and calming elements that relaxed and reinvigorated us growing up. 

These stories explore the wonder of the sleeping world as told through the dreams of foxes, trees, dolphins, even the land and stars themselves. 

Each scene weaves together mythic surreality with the perceptions of an adult struggling with the stress of everyday life. 

The music of the dream itself underlies the grand symphony that collects each tale, each poem, into a harmonious escape. In this place, no danger, no stressor, no burden nor blemish can mar the sheer beauty of a world unchanged since we first began to dream. 

Come, join the adventures, and remember what inspired you, moved you, and gave you that sense of perfect nighttime peace. 

It is too easy to become wrapped up in the stressful adult life and forget about the purer things that once gave a sheer joy to the possibility of tomorrow. 

Bedtime Stories for Stressed-Out Adults helps you to remember the good things and view them through a lens where dreams were not relegated merely to sleep. They were adventures into other worlds, promises of what would be and what could be. 

These stories and poems will reignite your imagination and restore that missing sense of relaxation to help you sleep. 

Come and dream with Jaina and the amazing world she sees once she closes her eyes. 

In this book, you will find:

  • A look into the fantastical world of dreams, where animals, plants, and even the earth and stars above experience dreams 
  • Memories that blend family holiday traditions with seasonal changes that touch upon the journeys that lead us to adulthood 
  • Parallels to the lives we know drawn to the things we remember, helping to remind us of what life is truly like when we don’t stress over everything 
  • A variety of stories and poems that capture the essence of the best things in life, to be heard alone before bedtime or with a loved one

love this audio book

A hero story, this is more Hobbit than Watership Down. More Narnia than Beatrix Potter. And it works. I was skeptical because I usually prefer my animal characters to be of the James Herriot kind - rather than the talking Beaver kind. But, this, like Lewis, somehow lets us forget that Heather and Picket are animals and instead we relate to the heroes in these interesting characters.

Best EVER!!

I get about minutes by minutes in and I'm out. I've listened to a lot of books to go to sleep but this is the only one that works. Great voice, and the stories aren't boring, but aren't so exciting to keep me awake. Perfect. I wish she'd do another one like this one.

Great audio book . love book

The narrator does have a gorgeous, soothing voice. However, listening to violent stories--for example--with great detail of how Snow White was lying in a pool of blood running from her hand because of the horribly ugly witch with a hook nose down to her chin---that's not the visual my child or I consider soothing before sleep.

Enjoyable short bedtime listen

I would highly recommend this book to everyone who has children! I caught my daughter signing one of the songs in the book today while on our way home so they definitely pay attention! Some of the rhymes/songs even have hand motions so that you can teach your kids how to dance to certain songs.

wife likes a lot

This audible book is so good that I have not managed to finish it as it puts me to sleep every time. The narrator's voice is very soothing, fatherly. Definitely a good purchase if you have trouble shutting your brain down at night.

Great audio book listen only

What a good idea to have short and shortish pieces that adults would (and in my case, did) enjoy. Some poetry, some familiar literature, some a bit out there, some so comforting. Lovely. I received the book as a gift, and bought another copy to give to my friend for her birthday.

You Drift Off & it Surrounds You With A Deep Inner

I look forward to listening to it every night; it is calming and soothing and I never get tired of it. I sleep so much better with this; when I wake up at night I wake up gently and I am able to fall asleep much easier. I am sleeping very deeply and waking up feeling good. Also, as a result of listening to this audiobook, I am feeling much more calm and tranquil during the day, as Dr Estes suggests at the beginning of the tape. I can feel the calmness in my body, I have never felt this ever in my life. Dr. Estes voice is so soothing and she is a wonderful storyteller. I am very appreciative of her creating this audiobook.

FAKE Reviews

This is terrible on all counts and the 5* reviews are all clearly fake. Should have taken the time to read them first. DO NOT WASTE YOUR money.

Good listen book

I have learned so much from this listen book. Her voice and vocal variety is the best. She is truly an outstanding storyteller. I was so relaxed I went right to sleep.

Really excellent listening!

I listen to this book to help me get to sleep and no joke it works. I haven't gotten to listen to all the stories just yet, but the voices are calming and definitely get after what I'm using it for.

Really excellent listening! Perfect bedtime listen

Both the voices and the stories were perfect for us. The female narrator is hypnotic.
