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.

    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.

    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.

  3. 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.

    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.

    I teach Yoga to children ages 2 to 7 years old. For many years I have used The Wishing Star Meditations at the end of each class. I recently purchased Aladin`s Magic Carpet. It is wonderful, for young and old! I know it is the favourite bit of the class for the children, when snuggle up under their blankets and are transported to a magical, fairytale world. I couldn`t recommend this book enough and I wouldn`t be without it.

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

    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!

    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.
