Relax Kids : Aladdin's Magic Carpet
Using well-known and loved fairy tales, this publication is a gentle and fun way of introducing children to the world of meditation and relaxation. It is designed to counteract some of the tensions with which we are all familiar at the end of a busy day, and offers parents and children together some quality time to relax and share. The meditations and visualizations aim to develop children's imagination and provide them with skills that should be invaluable for the rest of their life. Using 52 fairy stories and nursery rhymes, like flying on Aladdin's magic carpet, climbing Jack's beanstalk, flying through the air like Peter Pan, swimming in the ocean with the Little Mermaid, asking a question of the Wizard of Oz, listening to the sounds of the forest with Snow White and many others, children are encouraged to go on magical journeys in the mind.
