Inspire your children to develop their own altar & ritual!

Praise for How I Lay Me Down to Sleep
This precious book is my new favorite gift for children as its magic instills truths that last a lifetime. It encourages contemplation while nurturing a child’s innate wisdom. Also, the adorable illustrations inspire youth to create an altar or sacred space to celebrate the beauty of their day while simultaneously surrendering/transmuting any frustrations or sadness. My favorite lines:
In the night as I dream,
my Spirit flies free…
cradled by love in the Great Mystery.
Highly recommend!Allenda Dorrough
"... So many of today's children's books have nonsensical anthropomorphic characters and gimmicks. There's nothing wrong with that, but How I Lay Me Down To Sleep doesn't rely on cheap trickery. Nor does it have an overt preachy message like, "Be good or monsters from the closet will eat your family!" This book relies on more fundamental values like living with the Earth, not bending it to your will. Thinking about how you lived your day . . . The illustrations are fantastic and timeless. In thirty years, they will still look good. Why? Because they capture the spirit of things from our collective unconsciousness... Bird feathers, candles, cave paintings, sage! It's all there! This book will not disappoint and it will set itself apart from anything else in your child's collection." - Adam McKay
