Peaceful Piggy Bedtime
A delightfully illustrated bedtime routine to help children relax into sleep—and into kindness, gratitude, and self-compassion.
"It's time to go to sleep, but some friends are sleepy, and some are not. Some are already nodding off, and some want to bounce around. Now it's time to go from busy to peaceful. These mindful bedtime exercises will help us have a good night's sleep."
Bedtime can be a joy: a quiet time, a nice cuddle—a sleepy angel. Bedtime can also be a challenge: riled energy, hidden anxieties—a restless little monster! This book is intended to provide children with an effective bedtime ritual to relax the body, settle the mind, and drift into a peaceful sleep. Parents may find they sleep better, too!
