For children ages 6-12. This beautiful story teaches children how to use visualizations to relax, calm down, and lower stress. A sea child and a turtle take children on a relaxing bubble ride through the ocean. Children visualize filling and relaxing their mind and body with the colors of the rainbow.
Visualization, also known as creative imagery, can lower stress and anxiety levels. Visualizing is the ability to form a mental image or use your imagination. Visualization can have a positive impact on your child's overall health, creativity and performance. Creative imagery is also used to help patients heal faster with less pain, and has been considered a healing tool in virtually all of the world's cultures. The length of this story makes it ideal for older children or children with longer attention spans.
Note to Parent: Children are intrigued with both rainbows and bubbles. The colorful soothing experience of this story is so enjoyable, that you and your child will want to read it over and over again. Every child has a different emotional maturity, attention span and need. While the story is best suited for children ages 6-12, you know your child best. This is not about reading levels, this is about the actual techniques.
