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.

    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!

  2. Suzanne Carr

    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.

    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 .

    This book helps guide kids on many fun inner adventures. It helps enrich the imagination and helps kids learn to relax. Lots of fun guided imagery games to try, and easy to teach pointers toward peace of mind.

    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!

  6. Darcy

    Any book that captivates my hyperactive/gifted child`s attention for more than one hour deserves more than 5 stars. I am truly grateful for this brilliant book, the reason being is, because I have been trying unsuccessfully may I add, to get my daughter to meditate and what has taken me 2 years to achieve, took this book exactly 1 hour. This book contains brilliant meditations and affirmations, yet more importantly, it allows your child to use her/his imagination in a wonderful and creative manner. Buy this wonderful book and experience a moments of peace, harmony and contentment with your child.

    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.

    My partner just got back from a trip to the UK and bought me the Aladdins Magic Carpet book for our kids. We Home Ed so I encorporate the stories into our mornings to get us started in the right frame of mind for the day. Long story short, my children are more centred, relaxed and positive...what a fabulous resource you have created! I will be recommending it to all my friends!

  9. Sue

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

    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.
