My kids have NEVER fallen asleep while we read to them. Last night all THREE kids fell asleep before I had finished half of the book. Amazing!

Puts me to sleep every time

I found this book when searching for meditations /stories to help 5yo sleep. It's worked every time, not instantly but 15-25mins in. Slow and hypnotic, repetitive too (but that's where it gets' you). Worth a try of you need help winding your LO down.

Be careful to read which version you purchase

We accidentally purchased the UK version. There is nothing wrong with it, but our kiddo said he can't fall asleep to the story because the accent is not soothing.

Awesome book, the logic here...a stroke of genius

This story puts my son to sleep in less than 15 minutes(great accomplishment over here 😂👌 hes 3), with other books my son gets wrapped up and will stay up for a 45 minute treehouse book!
It essentially just says the sleepiest words over and over. "Fall asleep" "yawn" "tired" and "sleepy" is in almost every (if not all) sentence. I love it, he loves to hear as far as he can make it...I almost never make it myself 😂


Very clever concept A++

It works!

My granddaughter falls asleep well. I only wish it was a little longer because she would stay asleep longer.

magic!

We use this book every nap and every bed time now! It's so great in calming the kids down and putting them to sleep. The story is sweet and cute and the characters are nice. Normally puts adults to sleep also.

Sleeping is Believing

I was very skeptical that this book would perform as stated. It’s phenomenal! My youngster napped and so did I!!!

Not well done

My children could not stand the voice of the narrator, and made me stop playing it right away. Sadly, it was a waste of money.
We've listened to this book, read by a woman with an English accent and they loved it!

Fantastic for putting kids to sleep

Love the narrator's voice. Music narrator and story are the perfect combo for putting kids to sleep. Honestly I start getting drowsy myself when I listen. Highly recommend!

this really works!

my son always falls right asleep to this, usually no later than the middle of the story. we also have The elephant who wants to fall asleep and The rabbit who wants to fall asleep. this book will give you sanity at bedtime. and I sometimes use it to help relax my mind before bed as well.

Where has this been for the last two years!

My child who is 2.5 years and never slept through the night and takes usually 1.5-2 hours to fall asleep, has fallen asleep in the 40 minute time frame and it’s a miracle. It’s so soothing and I almost fall asleep too. I recommend the audio book versus the reading book.

Like magic!

I fall asleep too if I stay in the room! Excellent purchase! I’m going around telling every parent I know about this because it is awesome, knocks my kids out so fast and my 4 year old has requested it every night since we bought it.

Works every time so far

Each time I play this for my 2.5 year old I think it’s not going to work because he is extremely resistant to nap time and settling at bed time. So far he hasn’t stayed awake past the 30 minute mark even w his toddler tricks (more water, stroke my arm, I’m a carrot etc..)!

A must for all parents

These stories are a must have for children who struggle to fall asleep. We need one for children of 6 plus as we have found our little ones sadly grow out of them to fast.

You may fall asleep too

Only listened a couple of times and I'm actually not sure if we've finished the story? But it has seemed to work a treat so far (for both of us).

Well it puts me to sleep!

Bought this as we'd tried a similar story on YouTube and it worked wonders at getting the kids to sleep. I am slightly worried it's some sort of mkultra scheme but sometimes as parents that's a risk you're willing to take. Nice narration seems to work well, if my kids don't fall asleep I usually do.
