A Beach in the Bedroom: Sleep with Kip

Shamik tossed and turned and tossed and turned.

Try as he might, he just couldn't fall asleep.

Older children can find it hard to get to sleep because they are worrying about things. Visual imagery and relaxation techniques can help take their minds off these worries. These techniques are best suited to children aged 4 years and up. This story can get them started as they imagine they are lying on the beach, with the sound of the waves lapping on the shore, and a warm breeze passing over them......

Written by Robert Boddington & Jack Robertson with illustrations by Yoon Park & Matt Hughes. Read by Roby Favretto
