As someone who rarely enjoys a good night’s sleep I am pleased to be part of the launch celebrations for T.K.R’s children’s book Have You Seen The Sleep Fairy? as I could do with seeing the sleep fairy myself!
Published by Clink Street on 30th January 2018, Have You Seen the Sleep Fairy? is available for purchase from Amazon.
Have You Seen The Sleep Fairy?
Have YOU seen the Sleep Fairy? This is the story of a sleep deprived mother and father who are rescued by this shyest of fairies, who only comes out at night when all the children in the home are asleep.
She helps children get into the habit of sleeping through by leaving tiny items of interest under their beds for a few days until she can trust them to sleep through on their own.
This sweet story is simply told by the author and beautifully bought to life in this new illustrated children’s story.
Get your children into the habit of sleeping through by reading The Sleep Fairy to them and applying the idea to your family routine. Here’s to you and a peaceful night’s sleep.
My Review of Have You Seen The Sleep Fairy?
When little man can’t sleep his parents promise to tell him about the sleep fairy.
I know, I know! I always have a quick moan in children’s books when there are upper case words in the middle of sentences because I want children’s fiction to model perfectly how we would like emerging writing to look, so I’m going to get that small grouch out of the way first. Mind you, the children for whom this book is intended won’t be reading it personally so maybe I’m just being a grouch.
Other than that, I thought Have You Seen The Sleep Fairy? was a worthy children’s book. It’s a good way to encourage children to sleep through the night in the hope of a small gift left by the fairy if they do for four nights in a row so that parents can get children into a proper sleep routine.
The illustrations have a childlike naive style that children will relate to and the balance of text to image is good for pre-school children.
I’ve never had to get children to sleep all night, but I think parents struggling to do so could make excellent use of this book and have some fun reading it in the process.
