Announcing a magical bedtime story, Dreams In My Dreambook. First time children's author Stefanie Nastou, a corporate executive and mother of two boys, was inspired to write a story that would help parents motivate their children to look forward to bedtime. Getting children back onto a schedule in September is always a challenge, and inspiring children to go to bed on time, results in a happier, smarter and healthier child, let alone a relaxed and stress-free parent. The interactive nature of this beautifully illustrated picture book helps to set positive bedtime rituals, and establish a precious time for bonding.
Parents are constantly struggling with getting their children ready and into bed early enough for them to get a good night's sleep. According to The National Sleep Foundation (NSF)*, about 69 percent of children 10 and under experience some type of sleep problem. Toddlers (ages 1 to 3) need an average of 12 to 14 hours sleep in a 24 hour period and Preschoolers (ages 3 to 5) need an average of 11 to 13 hours sleep.
Making sure children get enough sleep is a common problem for most parents. According to Dr. Rafael Pelayo, MD a specialist from the Stanford Sleep Disorder Clinic in California, he tells kids that "sleep is good for you. Sleep is fun. It's when you get to dream and you can look forward to your dreams."
"I am absolutely thrilled that parents are using the Dreambook story to motivate their children to look forward to bedtime, and I'm inspired each time I hear a story from a parent on how it's opened their eyes to their child's secret wishes," said Stefanie Nastou author of Dreams in My Dreambook. "The purpose of this book is to bring parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles closer to the children in their lives, and what better way to do it then sharing each others dreams."
Dream In My Dreambook makes children view bedtime as an adventure and encourages positive dialogue between parents and children. The vibrant and whimsical illustrations bring a boy's dreams to life, and open up a child's mind to their imagination. This book motivates children to develop and think of what they would include in their own Dreambook. Parents can download a "My Dreambook" page at http://www.angelfacebooks.com where children can personalize and draw their own Dreambook story.
Once children are introduced to this bedtime story, they will look forward to the nightly ritual of getting ready for bed so they can share their Dreambook adventures. Dreams in My Dreambook is available online through Amazon and Barnes and Noble. To contact the author, Stefanie Nastou, call 416 616 2284.
