Stars Before Bedtime - A Mindful Fall-Asleep Book

£12.99

Creating calm bedtimes routines is not always easy - particularly when children are anxious about changes that they don't have any control over.  This beautiful debut book is written to create a soothing journey through the glittering constellations of the night sky, woven throughout with gentle sleep exercises. 

Star gazers of all ages will love this book. 

With gentle, calming artwork from the wonderfully talented Hannah Tolson and simple, melodic text, children explore the sky’s constellations and the mythical stories behind them as they get their minds and bodies ready for bed. Each exercise called out by a moon symbol (e.g. muscle relaxation, gentle yoga), is simple and easy to do and designed to release anxiety, clear minds and help curious children find sleep a little bit faster. 

A unique alternative to a traditional bedtime story. 

The pages are self-contained so you can start anywhere and complete as many, or as few, exercises as you like. Join your child as they complete the exercises—you might just find something that works for you, too.

  • Stretch out on your bed like the snake-like constellation Draco the Dragon—take a deep breath in through your nose and then breathe out all the air through your mouth, making a hissing sound, just like a slithering snake!
  • Close your eyes and picture the ship from the constellation Argo Navis in your head. Now climb on board and let’s go on an adventure. You are the captain of the ship. Maybe you’ll dream of floating through a moonlit sky on broad wings, like Aquila the Eagle. Or perhaps you’ll drift down a glittering stream with Cygnus the Swan.
  • Hold your hands together just like Castor and Pollux, the twins of the constellation Gemini. Rest them on your chest—can you feel your breath moving in and out as your chest rises and falls?

From the best-selling author and clinical psychologist Dr. Jessamy Hibberd.
