Nightlights: Meditations for You and Your Child by David Fontana
Make use of key skills, stories, illustrations and affirmations to help your child discover peace, creativity and confidence. This book, designed for parents to use with any child between the ages of 3 and 7, is a collection of 20 narrative-based meditations. Reading the stories aloud, we draw the child into adventures which fire their imagination. 15 of the meditations are beautiful stories aimed at helping children to focus their minds, release their worries, believe in themselves and trust in the world around them. The other 5 meditations sensitively tackle delicate issues facing small children, among them bereavement, nightmares and anxieties at school. Each of the meditations is both enjoyable, as a fantasy, and effective, as a gentle hand smoothing wrinkles from tiny furrowed brows.
