Note to Parent:
Children are intrigued with both rainbows and bubbles. The colorful soothing experience of this story feels so good, that you and your child will want to do it again and again. Every child has a different emotional maturity, attention span, and need. While the stories are best suited for ages 6-12, do not let this be your primary reason for selecting. You know your child best and remember this is not about the reading level. The focus is on the actual techniques.
“Teaching children visualization and relaxation techniques has been a difficult feat until I began using books such as Bubble Riding and CDs such as Indigo Dreams. This book has been integral in my treatment of anxiety related to sleep and overcoming other nighttime fears. It has also helped with school and social anxiety and pain management. This is exactly what I had been searching for since I began conducting psychotherapy with children.”- Summer Sullivan, Ph.D.
