    Every night my daughter(6) listens to Magical meditations for superheroes and often empower her friends and family with wonderful qualities like patience, love, peace. She regularly empowers herself by saying I can do it or I must stay calm.

    One of the predictors of reading comprehension is whether a child can visualize the story. So, in order to help with this skill, we called our Relax Time - "Relaxation and Visualization". We would listen to one of the tracks off the Nature or Superheroes CD twice a day - once before instruction began and the other time after recess. Then one to two times a week, they would get out their journals and draw what they pictured in their minds when listening to the story. I could not believe the first time I did this because my students who struggled with comprehension, drew nothing that went with the story. We had listened to the track "Clouds" and one of the struggling students drew a house with flowers. From that point on, I began "think alouds" on the days we did not draw in order to demonstrate the visualization process. Over the course of 5 months, of the three struggling students, two of them were consistently answering comprehension questions correctly The third student who continued to struggle was later diagnosed with a learning disablity. I was so pleased with how I saw this "Relaxation and Visualization" time benefit the students, I will implement this again next year and the students will have a journal just for their visualizations. As far as behavior goes, one students in particular who was extremely active, would ask if we could "do our relax time" if our schedule was different for the day. He really took this time to focus his behavior. His focus would last about 2 to 3 hours - that is the reason why we would repeat the same CD track after recess.

    Fantastic CD. My 7 year old son has struggled to go to sleep for the last 2 years, we bought him your CD about 4 months ago and now he always falls asleep listening to it within about 5-10 minutes. One problem - if I lie next to him at night I can only listen to 2-3 stories before Im also asleep.

    I let the whole disc run, noticing how my daughter had completely chilled out and it’s fair to say that she stayed that way for the rest of the evening. When "Aladdin’s Magic Lamp" came on, I saw her rub the small lamp on my computer desk and then head over to the fridge. “Oh, it’s not there!” she said, disappointed. “What’s not?” I asked, half guessing. “The chocolate!” That had been her wish: she was Master of the Story and by now we were on track 11. Impressive: that’s staying power. When it was bedtime, I asked whether she wanted to listen to the CD again. She did. While she was brushing her teeth, I prepared the system for our meditative bedtime stories. “Don’t put it on until I’m ready,” she shouted, dribbling toothpaste down her pyjamas. As if I would!

    My son has a diagnosis of `extreme anxiety` which affects his life at school and at home. SInce using the Wizard and Superhero cd`s as part of his bedtime routine he has slept better and has not come into my room at night (scared the monsters will have eaten me) for a long time.

    My son listened to the track last night, over and over again and when I took the mp3 player away from him he said at some point while listening he had stopped thinking, which is unusual for him. Shortly after that he fell asleep and awoke happy and cheerful this morning.

    After many sleepless nights with my 3 year old son, i was sure there wasnt an end to the cycle of waking 3-4 times in night. I didnt think the Relax kids cd would work straight away but i put it in my sons dvd player and left the room. He loved it and for the first half hour he was messing about as it was something new. After about 45 mins it was totally quiet which is extremely unusual and he was sound. When morning came i realised he hadnt woke once in night, so i was truly shocked. Next night was the same, except he just led down in bed and closed his eyes to listen and was asleep within 15 minutes. I will definatly be looking at more in the range as its brilliant and definately works.

    Recently we were given a gift of this CD. At first glance it had a pretty picture and sounded interesting. We weren’t to know its true value until one of our munchkins wandered off to their bedroom with it. It was like magic, said child sound asleep all night…no waking up for a drink…no 5am wake up call for us…and a happy smile over breakfast!!! Since that evening the CD has swapped between our houses, been lent out to friends. ! Word is obviously spreading.

    This is a fabulous CD. My child had lots of trouble dropping off to sleep before. Since purchasing this bedtimes have been much less stressful for both of us. I put this on for him to listen to when I leave the room and within 10 -15 minutes he is in a deep sleep.

    Morgan has asked for the CD to go on and doesn’t whine to watch TV. We are all calmer because we know once the CD goes on we have the chance of a peaceful evening
