Will this book help your child fall to sleep?

When we received a package from Vicks as part of their #VicksTricks campaign, we were intrigued by the book inside.  The title of my blog post for their campaign was ‘I’ve Got a Trick Up My Sleeve’ and so did they, it seems!

Their ‘trick’ was a book entitled ‘The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep: A New Way of Getting Children to Sleep
by Carl-Johan Forssen Ehrlin.

And what an intriguing book.  The idea is to read this book to your child who doesn’t want to or won’t sleep, at bedtime.  I found it quite challenging to read because of the style.  By that I mean that parts were in italics (which you say in a soft, slow voice) and bold (which you say ‘in character’ and animate your voice etc).  To accompany the book were 3 finger puppets, to use alongside the book, to really bring the book alive.

We love a bedtime story in our house, we always have and in all honesty, we’ve never really had any issues with our 7 year old wanting to go to bed or to sleep.  I’ve mentioned before how she asks me to read 7 pages and then she reads the rest herself by torchlight..

So to be asked by our daughter to read the whole lot came as a surprise.  A nice one though!  It felt very odd not to be reading the whole 7 pages and our daughter didn’t even manage to read the rest herself!  Why?  Because by about page 4, she was curled up in bed, with her teddies and duvet around her, heavy-eyed and ready for sleep.  She usually sits up next to me in bed, snuggled up under her duvet holding a teddy.  So was this coincidence?  Well, we will never know but in any case, the concept of the book is really clever!

Have you come across this book?  Do you find bedtime challenging?!  Tell me in the comments below or tweet me @AllSortsHere 🙂

Are you the sort of person who doesn’t ‘get’ new social media platforms?

I didn’t get Facebook… then I got sucked in.

I didn’t get Twitter… then I got sucked in.

I didn’t get Google+… then I got sucked in.

There are tons more social media platforms out there and even with all the best intention in the world, I wouldn’t even have time to get sucked into them as well.

Which is just as well because my time is already getting sucked away by pinterest.  From funnies, to inspirational life quotes.  From blog posts I’ve written to blog posts I’ve read.  From ‘Just Wow’ moments, to ‘My Zen’. I’ve created boards which I think cover most aspects of my likes 🙂  Oh yes, I love a good pinning session!!

I also pin my posts to my blog board and have it in mind to get to grips with infographics in the not too distant future…

Want to pin with me?  Then follow along 🙂

‘I’ is for Inspiration for #AtoZChallenge

Is Frank a monkey or is he a pig?

One thing’s for sure, he’s very big!

He sits all alone, day after day,

Just dreaming and whiling the time away.

~

He looks happy enough does our Frank, it’s true

Though it’s hard to tell if he’s looking at you.

His big googly eyes look this way and that,

His whiskers are long and he’s rather fat.

Sitting in his tank with nothing to do

But observe the scenery at the Water Zoo!

Inspired by a cat fish called ‘Frank’ who was resident ‘pet’ at my local Water Zoo for year.  I wonder if he’s still there?  Bet he could dish the dirt on the neighbourhood because his tank was right by the front of the shop onto the main road!

Prose for Thought

Is it someone’s birthday and you don’t know what to do?
Let me write a personal rhyme, especially for you.
Pop it in a card, on a pretty label or a letter,
A bespoke rhyme, what a great idea, sit back, relax… that’s better!

All occasions are catered for, it’s really so much fun!
Weddings, birthdays, to wish ‘good luck’, rhymes for each and every one…
Up my sleeve I have a personal rhyme just itching for a reason,
Ready to be conjured up for every single season…

A personal rhyme from you to them,
it’s unique, bespoke and easy.
Get in touch today, waste no more time,
It’s really easy peasy…
