Hello, can anyone recommend a couple of good mediation audiobooks for a 6 year old (having terrible trouble trying to get him to switch off at night) and also long chapter story audiobooks that are on the relaxing side for him - not necessarily meditation based - but not too stimulating. Thank you!

Not sure about meditation, but I have always found The Wind in the Willows a very soothing book
this is read by Alan Bennett which sounds ideal.

My dc love stig of the dump and the entire collection of Beatrix potter (still!) on Audible ... the voices are very calming grin apparently anything read by Kate Winslet is also very calming!

The calm app has a section for kids with sleep stories, David Williams has a nice one I think it’s called the sleepy sloth x

My 7 year old has loved the magic far away tree and Tom gates. Headspace app may help settling.
