Driven by the desire to help her three-year-old daughter settle down into a peaceful night's sleep, Maureen Garth devised meditations that would help her daughter feel secure and cared for. "Starbright" is a collection of the stories Garth created as her child grew older. These innovative meditations are simple visualizations parents and teachers can read to their children to help them sleep, develop concentration, awaken creativity, and learn to quiet themselves.

"Unfortunately, a lot of children have trouble learning these techniques by the time they are seven or eight," writes Garth. "Relaxation and visualization, if taught at an earlier age, could enhance not only children's school work but other areas of their lives. Their concentration would improve; their artistic abilities would develop; they would feel more centered; their daydreaming could not only bring joy, but be constructive."

In her engaging, warm, and personal style, Garth teaches parents how to help their children relax, concentrate, and develop artistic and mental abilities, as well as enjoy a good night's sleep.

Wonderfully imaginative meditations

Comments about Starbright:

I bought this book for my almost 2 year old who has always struggled with sleep. He is a bit young for it unfortunately, but I think when he gets a bit older it will be fantastic for helping him relax and go to sleep. The meditations are great, so imaginative and positive, I'm really looking forward to using it when my son is a bit older. Really love it.

Comments about Starbright:

This is the most amazingly gorgeous childrens book I've ever read. Full of beautiful stories to inspire children's imaginations and help them deal with their fears and anxieties. I wish I had been told about this book earlier.
