This is going to sound insane. You’re going to think I’m crazy... but two weeks ago, I was at a breaking point. I was ready to try anything to help with bedtime. Honestly, anything. Between my exhaustion, our5 year old wild child and our 3 year old insomniac. Bedtime was nothing short of a hot mess. I stumbled upon this and ordered it on a whim. (Not like me at ALL) Best 15 bucks I have ever spent! Ever. I’ll be buying a back up and slowing stocking up on his other CD’s.
To be fair I have focused a lot on really sticking to our routine. Which isn’t all that strict. Potty, teeth, drink, start cd, hug & kiss. And I walk out. But no one can tell me this CD hasn’t played a huge part in our turning point.
This is such a wonderful CD! I bought this as an audio cassette at the time my little girl was born. We enjoyed listening to it many times. Jim Weiss's voice is wonderfully soothing and warm. The visualization is great. You feel like you really are there enjoying a cup of hot chocolate. If you have a little one and even if you don't and want to take yourself away, get this CD! You won't regret it!
I purchased this CD for my grandchildren, it is replacing the old cassette tape that I used for my own children 20 years ago. Jim Weiss is a master storyteller and I highly recommend any of his works, they are great for all ages. This CD contains six short vignettes that draw the listener into an enchanted world. It is a perfect way to help lull a child off to sleep, and the brief period of gentle music at the end of each story allows listeners to stop the CD before the next story begins. If your child (or grandchild) has difficulty "slowing down" before slumber, this is the best solution I've found. It works pretty well on the grown-ups, too.
Mr. Weiss' voice is so soothing my husband falls asleep when listening to this. One and 1/2 years later and she still listens to this at night; never tiring from the stories. I bought another sleep tape at the time but she listened to it twice and it's sat in its case since then. It's really a good quality, has lasted from lots of use, and she enjoys it. What else can I say?
