Nightlights is a book of stories to read to children, but stories with a difference, it is more than just bedtime stories. It's a collection of twenty interactive meditation stories that have been specially written to calm and relax your child at bedtime, while at the same time engaging and stimulating his or her imagination. The introduction of this book provides techniques for parents to help develop their out-loud reading skills, shows how to create the right mood, and gives practical advice on how to talk with your child about what he or she has just heard.
They help them to focus their minds and develop their powers of concentration and visualisation, as well as learn more about emotions and feelings. They also foster imagination and creativity, help children deal with their burgeoning anxieties, and help them take their first steps towards developing their own unique identity.
After each story, there is a brief list of affirmations which help to explain the message to both parent and child.
