Editorial Reviews

online - Sherri Hoskins
My son has a hard time relaxing at night. He has autism. So our favorite way for him to settle down and relax is to read "A boy and a turtle". He is able to forget about his day and relax. I am also able to calm down as I read the book. We are both ready to sleep when we are done. This book is our favorite of the series. They are all good but this is our absolute fav!
Industry Trade Mag - Chris Bishop
After read this book to my 5 year old at bedtime, it has become our bedtime book and is read every night. I really think it relaxes her (and me too) and helps transitioning to sleep. I also believe that she "gets it" and that is why she enjoys it so much. The breathing exercise is her favorite. I highly recommend this book. It is a great way to introduce a way to relaxation at an early age.

    One Great Story!

    I ordered A Boy and a Turtle based on my therapist's advice. This book is one wonderfully relaxing story that has shown my child how to relax with the turtle by using this visualization technique. My son loves the story and asked for it whenever he is over stimulated, stressed or angry. It is easy to follow along, the illustrations are adorable and he falls asleep. What more can I ask for?

    Extremely Effective Relaxation Bedtime Story!,

    First I will begin by listing the programs/CD's/books that I have purchased from Lite Books. 4 books: A Boy and a Bear, The Affirmation Web, A Boy and a Turtle and The Goodnight Caterpillar plus 5 audio CDs: Indigo Dreams, Indigo Ocean Dreams, Indigo Dreams: Garden of Wellness, Indigo Teen Dreams and Indigo Dreams: Adult Relaxation plus: Children's Stress Awareness Curriculum Designed for Youth Education. Next I will say 'THEY ARE ALL AMAZING!' For 9 years I worked as an advocate for children in a homeless shelter for women and children. I was constantly challenged with finding resources that were short, effective, and held the attention of the children. I was able to find resources but not all in one spot, I had to piece a little of this and a little of that to reach a fully rounded program that worked. The tools that Lori Lite created within each book and each CD offer short, highly effective programs that hold the attention of children. And best of all it is a package deal! You do not have to pull from any other program because the tools that she gives you are all you need. I am now an HHP and use the books and CD's when working with children of any age to simply give them powerful tools that they can use in daily life and hopefully carry into teen and adult hood. In my opinion Lite Books offer the best resources available to the health and wellness of children on the market. Within my own life I use the CD's as a nightly staple within the bedtime process of my children. They have not been able to stay awake long enough to finish even one of the stories on the CD yet. That is how relaxing the CD's are. For myself I have to stay sitting up when tucking them in and listening with them because if I get comfortable I am waking up in the middle of the night still in my kid's room! During daylight hours and when my children are well rested I have worked each session on the CD's with them from beginning to end. Now when they are feeling overwhelmed, frightened, angry etc... I will see them use the techniques they have learned through Loris programs, they move quickly from the negative feeling to a positive approach and positive result. Lite Books offers professional and friendly customer service, with great shipping time. I am so grateful to have found this amazing resource and look forward to being one of their strongest professional advocates as well as personal customers!

    Feel Good ,Relaxing Story!

    A Boy and a Turtle is a wonderful addition to our bedtime routine. My kids love the rainbow and the fact they are just tickled that turtle is copying the boy as they learn to relax. My son said that the colors make him feel happy and my daughter wants to read it again. I personally feel my own stess levels drop as I read the story to them. The author takes a difficult concept(visualizing or imagining) and makes it simple.I have even reminded them to copy the turtle when we are in the car and things are getting loud. It works. Great stress management tool!
