    DescriptionMeditation and visualisation, if approached in an inventive and appealing manner, bring enormous benefits to children. It can calm their anxieties, build their self-esteem, unlock their imagination, and teach them quietness and thoughtfulness. This book, designed for parents to use with any child between the ages of 4 and 8, is a collection of 20 narrative-based meditations. Reading the stories aloud, we draw the child into adventures which fire their imagination. In this way we help the child focus their minds, release their worries, believe in themselves and trust in the world around them. All the stories sensitively tackle difficult challenges facing small children, such as how to cope with disappointment, how to make good decisions, how to deal with anxieties and how to banish boredom. Each of the meditations is both enjoyable, as a fantasy, and effective, like a gentle hand smoothing wrinkles from tiny furrowed brows.
