This review is from: Mermaids and Fairy Dust (Calm for Kids) (Audio CD)
I bought this CD on Amazon a couple of weeks before my elder daughter's 4th birthday, with a view to using it on a trip alone with my two wee ones to help the older one get to sleep and not keep the little one awake.
My daughter had never gone to sleep alone or indeed slept without someone in the room with her all night.
I loaded this on to my ipod and in the Holiday Inn at the airport shared my headphones with my daughter, and was amazed when my little girl, who would usually be scrape-off-the-ceiling hyper to be staying in a hotel room, calmed right down and drifted off peacefully within 2 or 3 short tracks. This amazing pattern carried on through my 2.5 week holiday, despite staying in three different places. By the end of the holiday my daughter was able to go asleep on her own in her own room listening to the CD. This is life changing. I am delighted. The narrator's voice is a calm monotone, but friendly and reassuring. The stories are lovely - perfect for little girls. My daughter's favourite is "Pony Ride".
I would highly recommend this CD to anyone with a girl who struggles to calm down / fights sleep at bedtime.
