For those that have received a “sneak peak” at Mimi’s new book, the reaction has been overwhelming! Here are what just a few parents have to say about it:
From Amazon.com Reader Reviews:
“For some parents, getting their children to sleep is rather easy, at night the child is tired and ready to get in bed. However, there are some children for whom sleep is difficult, it is just their nature to find it difficult to get to sleep. Parents can struggle in trying to find a way to overcome this problem, it can be frustrating for both the parents and the child.
The technique described in this book is not original, I remember reading about similar tactics for adult relaxation as well as for children many years ago. It basically is just talking to the various parts of your body, telling them that it is time to relax and rest.
I never had to use this technique with my daughter, turning the light off was generally all that was necessary to get her to go to sleep. However, I have personally used this technique for relaxing and know it works. Our bodies are very open to simple suggestions and this is a safe way to to get a child to sleep. Although, as Sommers points out, it is habit-forming.”

The illustrations are very cute. I was expecting rhyming type wording but it didn’t do that for every page.
My mom didn’t have this book but she used the old “rocking chair” technique which worked for me. I understand not all parents are inclined to take this route so if you are not a rocking chair parent, then this book might be the idea you are looking for to solve those bedtimes woes by reading this book to them.

“Relax-a-bye Baby is a precious and essential book every parent should have. The lovely rhythmical rhyming story lulls even the parent reader to sleep, as the “voice” of the story is calming and so relaxing. This is one of those treasured books children look forward to reading night after night, for years. Even if your child does not have issues falling asleep, I absolutely recommend this book for its ability to capture its audience from the first soothing page to the last beautiful, bold illustration.”

Their favorite part is letting out all their air like a lion! Then it isn’t long until they are quiet and still. One can feel the love passed on by the authors in this book. Wonderful story !!! I give this a definite 5 star rating!”
