Sometimes I Dream...A Book for Infant Sleep

Reading to children before they understand language allows them to associate books with love and affection.

The Sleep Diet? A Novel Approach to Insomnia

In his clinical practice in sleep medicine, Dr. Colon has made several observations. One, insomnia is commonly accompanied with complaints of “racing thoughts” and “my mind won’t shut down”. Another, patients with insomnia do not commonly read insomnia self-help books as they state they are “difficult to read”. The Sleep Diet is a “novel” approach to insomnia because it is indeed a novel and not a mere list of instructions. Dr. Colon firmly believes explanations are more important than instructions. Laughter makes people feel good, and also has an alerting quality. His style in this book is to make you laugh and then make you think.

The Magic Ice Cream Palace

Bedtime can be difficult for parents and children, but it doesn't have to be. Bedtime has the opportunity to be a bonding experience for children and parents. Paradise Sleep Children's Books help teach children self-regulation skills through story and metaphor. There is also an emphasis in living in the present moment. The stories are whimsical and engaging for the child, while also teaching valuable life lessons to parent and child alike-because a healthy child needs a healthy family. When we encourage others to encourage others, we make this world a better place.
