A little gem of a book called Sleepy Magic by Danielle Wright is causing quite a stir with parents.

Sleepy Magic by Danielle Wright


Be advised that Sleepy Magic is not your typical children's book, based more on fact than fiction. Sleepy Magic fosters healthy sleep for children, using easy to follow calming techniques to assist with relaxation at bedtime.

The hardback book introduces a step-by-step bedtime ritual to families of children that fall into the age bracket of 3 - 10 years.

Relaxation techniques include:

meditation
affirmations
using imagination
breathing essentials.

Once new techniques are taken on board, it is time for Sleepy Magic story time; a calming yet exciting opportunity to dig deep into your own imagination and that of your child's.

Here is what parents are saying:

"Although still new to Sleepy Magic, my son and I have been enjoying our bed-time ritual. This is the first time I have read to my son with his eyes closed - it is a joy to see him lie in his bed with a big grin as we run through the story together. With the help of Danielle (by email) we developed a Minecraft version of Sleepy Magic, which he absolutely loves because of course, Minecraft is big in a 7 year old's world!" - Erica, mother of two boys, 2 and 7.

“Sleepy Magic is a twinkling little gem. It is a beautiful bonding night-time ritual for my daughters and me. The stories we make up together become more magical and more exciting every time we do it. But Sleepy Magic has given them much more than that; it has introduced them to their inner voice and the realisation that strength, gentleness and happiness comes from within. What an incredible gift to give to every little girl” - Mary, mother of three daughters aged 6, 7 and 9.

And the kids:

“It was a fun way of getting to sleep. It made me feel relaxed and calmed, and grateful at the end. My favourite part is the story about being a great person" - Mac, age 13.

“Sleepy Magic makes me feel good and sleepy” - Evan, age 9.

Sleepy Magic follows the personal journey of the author; Danielle Wright, and why she shifted her life focus.

The book exists as a result of Danielle's own success in bonding with her two young boys as a result of techniques demonstrated in her book, which have now become an integral part of her family life.

Danielle has witnessed the positive effects on her children's self-worth, which is why she now wants to spread the message to other parents, and prove that anyone can create a special kind of magic with their own children.

If you would like to take the battle of our bedtime, pick up a copy of Sleepy Magic, found in several bookstores. The full list of stockists can be found here.
