    A stress and frustration manager for kids!

    I recently went on a search for tools to help my son better manage his behavior when angry or frustrated.This book has turned out to be a fantastic investment. My son loves the book and is now using the relaxation techniques intoduced in the story regularly. I highly recommend this book as an excellent resource for helping children learn to calm down when over-stimulated or angry. The idea that the child is teaching the caterpillar is a brilliant touch empowering children to be responsible for their own emotions and even being an example to adults.

    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!

    Favorite Bedtime and Class Story

    This story adds a new spin on an old journey! A caterpillar too stressed out to see clearly and too ridden with anxiety to accomplish the task ahead of him is shown how to relax by himself! In addition to this being my child's absolute favorite bedtime story,it is the favorite of her first grade class. I read to the class once a month and even though I bring other books, they always ask me to read this one. The class is intrigued by the caterpillar and the bright water color illustrations. They love to relax with the adorable caterpillar. I especially like the author's choice of vocabulary. Kids today are smarter than we think and they appreciate being spoken to in an intelligent manner. If the occasional child is challenged by words like, 'nourished, confident, and accomplish,' then it is a perfect opportunity to teach them the meaning of these wonderful words that are meant to fortify our children's minds and bodies. In today's stressed out, rush about world, this book should be mandatory!
