About this item

How can we help our little warriors  calm down and concentrate?  Creative visualization is the art of using mental images and affirmations to produce positive changes in our lives. It helps to bring to light everything that we have inside, everything that we can enhance and improve: confidence, self-esteem, concentration, intuition, creativity, and more. Why not start using these techniques as children?

In Relaxations, creative metaphors help children achieve a state of calm and concentration through breathing, relaxation, and visualization. With gentle affirmations, children can improve and enhance confidence, self-esteem, concentration, and creativity! 

Includes a Note to Parents and Caregivers by the author with other suggestions for practice.


Do you know what spaghetti is?  I’m sure you do. Try to visualize a piece  of uncooked spaghetti. Can you see it?  Well, now imagine that you are that piece  of spaghetti. Your body is stiff… 
Now imagine yourself going into a pot, or into a warm swimming pool full of bubbles… mmmmm… 
You’ll begin feeling your body loosen up,  loosening little by little, just like spaghetti after some time bobbing up and down in boiling water.
Feel how all parts of your body get looser bit by bit: your feet, your knees, your legs, your back, your waist, your chest, your hands, your arms, your neck, your head…they’re all like boiled spaghetti. 
Now you feel that your body is completely relaxed… 
Al dente! 
Ready to eat!

It's a good book for older children who can visualize the images for themselves without much instruction from the reader. My son just turned 8 and he loves it when I read him this book prior to bed (although we didn't get it as a bedtime story, originally). But now that we have read it several times...see moreof the reviewer's review
