PAGES OF IMAGINATION Written by Marneta Viegas - founder of Relax Kids, this book combines well-known and loved fairytales with simple meditation and mindfulness techniques to help children relax. Children go on magical adventures in their mind as they imagine they are Aladdin floating on a carpet, Jack climbing the beanstalk and floating in the clouds, the little mermaid swimming in the ocean and Sleeping Beauty lying in a satin bed. The book supports children's imagination as they become the main character in each story. This highly imaginative and captivating book holds childrens attention whilst teaching important relaxation skills. The story relaxations have been designed to help children relax and destress. These relaxations aim to develop confidence and creativity. This book is designed to engage children while introducing them to relaxation and simple stress-management techniques. Relaxation strategies such as progressive muscle relaxation and visual imagery have been shown to be extremely effective treatment components for reducing stress and anxiety in children. This book is an invaluable bedtime and classroom tool. Each relaxation lasts around 4-5 minutes and is perfect to bring rest and calm to the room. These story meditations are a wonderful way for children to explore learning and mindfulness. Children love to tell stories, role-play stories and teach others what they learn from stories. Research supports that mindful meditation calms the brain, inspires creativity and enhances cognitive and social-emotional skills. Practiced regularly, these exercises can have a profound effect on children’s mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. This book can be used in the classroom to bring quiet and calm before lessons, during assemblies, PSHE classes, after PE and during wet play time. This is a soft back book.

    A great resource for wind down / cool down in any classroom or bedtime situation. Lovely, calming peaceful pieces that focus the children`s mind and relax them.

  2. Elizabeth

    My 3 year old says to say `good night Marneta, I`m on the carpet with Aladdin` Bless him!

  3. Sue

    I`ve just introduced my friend`s little boy to this book - he is loving having the meditations read to him

  4. Trinity, age 7

    I like the colors and the peace, love, and happiness in the book. It makes me feel happy and calm. I would love my best friend to read the book and use the star cards.

  5. Tilly, nearly 6

    My friend Isaac gave me Aladdin’s Magic Carpet Book for my birthday one year. I love imagining being a Princess, but my favourite story is Goldilocks as it makes me yawn and relaxes me the best. It makes me imagine that I am trying out the chairs and the porridge. I like porridge. I think Father Christmas will give me a Princess CD as it is on my list.

  6. Mrs A. Marsh

    I run a nurture group in a primary school. The group is for children with social, emotional and some behavioural difficulties. One lunchtime each week I provide a relaxation session in the nurture room for approxiamtely twelve K.S.2 children. Until I bought this book I had to write my own stories and I`m no author! This book has proved invaluable. The children really love the stories and I think they enjoy them more as they are familiar to them. All the children say they love the relaxation sessions and don`t want to go back to class! I would recommend it to other professionals and parents for bedtime stories

  7. Louise Knight

    I brought it as i was told it would help my daughter through a stage of panic attacks and so far it is helping her and me get through it so i do recommend to buy this book as there .

  8. These books are absolutely amazing and I would strongly recommend them to anyone who has children - regardless of their age. I play them at bed time to both of my boys (6 and 8), and they love them.

  9. F Appleby

    This book is brilliant especially when combined with the relax kids cds as they all follow the same theme and connect. we use relax kids products with our three children aged 3,4 and 6 and all three equally enjoy and benefit from it! The pictures in the book are lovely and each meditation lasts around 4-5mins which is just the right length of time for young listeners! i would fully reccomend this to anyone!

  10. Cheryl

    I am a yoga teacher and I teach a class for families (kids and adults participate together.) This book is perfect for leading the relaxation at the end of class. The guided imagery is beautiful, and appropriate for all ages. The messages are very peaceful, relaxing, and calming. It would also be a great book for families to share at bedtime!
