Has anyone seen this book? It looks really interesting. My boys are now over the days of sleeping badly and it's tough to get them out of bed!! but if you have your little ones and struggle to get them to sleep then you may find it interesting. It is supposed to help them to fall right to sleep easily!

I read the article in the Daily Mail about this book.

Basically I just think it is one of those relaxation tapes, but in book form. About your body feeling heavy, feeling like you are falling /floating. Eyelids heavy and so on. Methodical, calm, soothing language.

Good idea that it has been put in childrens book form though.

Yes I think it is hypnosis really. Seems like a hypnosis script for children but then should anyone be able to read that? Is that safe I wonder?

Gosh of course it's safe! It's not like having Paul McKenna standing over them commanding them to 'sleep now'. It's simply a way to help some children relax before bed. I doubt it works in every case but I'm going to give it a try for curiosity sake if nothing else.

I've just been googling it to see and seems like it is hypnosis after all... www.markpowlett.co.uk/myblog/read_131546/the-rabbit-who-wants-to-fall-asleep-review-by-a-hypnotherapist.html like you say sounds safe though and actually that review says you can do it without the book anyway. I'm off to take mine to the park now. I know for certain that taking them there will help them sleep!!! lol
