Adorable Olive had a long day and is tired. She settles in for a good night’s sleep, but it isn’t easy. Using techniques based in neuroscience to help children relax, fall asleep, and stay asleep, author and child psychologist Clementina Almeida presents a charming bedtime story teaching parents techniques to help their child turn off . Why is it sometimes so hard for little ones to fall asleep? “Because,” says Almeida, “the world never ceases to surprise them, . . . their mind cannot ‘disconnect.’”
I could see how this book may be helpful to a parent whose little one struggles to sleep but all the parent tips distracted from the story.
