Publication Date: 3 March 2020

The Blurb

Create a calm bedtime ritual with this debut book in the Before Bedtime series, Stars Before Bedtime – a soothing journey through the glittering constellations of the night sky woven with tried-and-tested sleep exercises from the bestselling author and clinical psychologist Dr Jessamy Hibberd.

The Review

A stunning collection of constellation stories and mindful activities to aid a calm bedtime and restful sleep, Stars Before Bedtime is so much more than a bedtime story.

As we are taken on a journey through the stars, we are introduced to Greek Gods and Goddesses, mythical heroes and monsters, and a zoo in the sky.

Each step of the journey has a related exercise to promote mindfulness and aid relaxation, which are all explained in a way that makes them easy to follow, many of which can be used throughout the day to help restore calm.

The deceptively simple illustrations deserve to be poured over to capture all of the intricate details of the mythological characters captured n the stars.

Each self contained double page spread can be explored on it’s own, making this perfect to dip in and out of if you don’t have time to read it all, or find a particularly effective relaxation exercise.

Whether as an introduction to the stars, Greek myths, relaxation techniques or, all three combined, this is a beautiful book whether it’s bedtime or not.

Huge thanks to Wide Eyed Editions for sending me a copy.
