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. Benefits of using this book: Improves sleep Boosts immune system (deep relaxation boosts immune system) improves concentration and focus Improves listening skills Improves self-esteem and positivity Improves emotional health and literacy Improves creativity and imagination Improves ability to cope with stress and anxiety Suitable for children ages 3 - 9

    i love my aladdin magic carpet book, mum has been reading it to me for the last 3 months, because of the book i now go to bed on my own, mum reads me 3 stories from the book each night ( i pick the stories myself by looking at the lovely pictures) and then mum leaves when i am relaxed she let me look at the pictures and i pick my stories for tomorrow night, some times i pretend to read the stories to my little sister 2 and brother 6 mths, i say closes your eye and be very still, i feel so grown up when i telll them the stories. i hope mum will always read me these stories and i know my brother and sister will love them too, thank you for helping me be a big boy and makin going to bed such fun xx

    I would just like to let you know my house hold is a much relaxed and enjoyable place to be. I have recently purchased your books and read them to my son and daughter on a nightly basis. These books have changed our lives. I thank you from the bottom of my heart as I now realize that my children and I can enjoy each other the way a family if supposed to be.

    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

  6. Annie

    This book will be a childhood classic for my children

  7. 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!

  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. Sue

    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.

  10. Brenda

    My kids LOVE your meditation books- we read one every night at bed time.
