Sleep Tight! Mindful Kids
A self-care activity book for children aged 7+ to doodle their way to better sleep and rest. This book includes fun, simple and encouraging activities to help children explore their emotions, behaviour and experiences of resting and sleeping well. Children can use their creativity to combat negative feelings and learn more about why sleep and rest is so important.
More children are suffering with mental health issues, such as anxiety and digital addiction, so sleep is a big concern as they struggle to fully switch off and get a good nights' sleep. The quirky illustrations will keep readers entertained and focused as they work through the book - or simply dip into the pages for ten minutes of calming colouring. Part of the Mindful Kids range of thoughtful activity books for children that includes: No Worries, Hello Happy, Stay Strong, Be Brave, Be Positive and Letting Go.
