When I was first offered to review a children’s book with relaxation techniques, I wasn’t sure what to think. I received an adorable children’s story with charming illustrations. Reading the short book, I got it. With calming words and serene images, it’s hard not to relax while reading to your little one.
“Imagine it is a beautiful warm day. There is a lovely breeze blowing. Imagine you are in a big field in the county….”
Stress is not a word commonly associated with children, but in this increasingly busy and demanding world children are facing the realities of living with stress earlier and earlier in their lives.
Lisa Hemmings and Allan O’Keefe, who have extensive experience working with children suffering from a variety of problems from stress to anxiety, have developed a number of resources that teach children how to manage their stress.
Imagine Me With The Three Owls is a children’s picture book that teaches children how to use their imaginations and the importance of self-acceptance. This book takes readers or listeners on a relaxing journey through the magic of nature during nighttime and is a great activity that parents and children can enjoy together.
Hemmings teaches ‘Chill Skills for Kids’ classes that show children techniques they can use in order to relax. After the success of these classes, Hemmings and O’Keefe wanted to supplement their classes with take home activities for parents, which is how Imagine Me With The Three Owls was born.
Imagine Me With The Three Owls also be purchased at Amazon.com for $12.04.
