Sam the Sleepy Sheep: Enchanting New Storybook Talks Children to Sleep

Created by renowned hypnotherapists Rory Z Fulcher and Dr Kate Beaven-Marks, ‘Sam the Sleepy Sheep’ is a brand new book on the market that uses 100% natural sleep-inducing language to help lull young children into a healthy night’s rest. 

A great new way to get children to go to sleep! Join Sam the Sleepy Sheep and friends in this charming, magical bedtime story, which is also a completely natural, safe and fun way to get children to go to sleep. The authors, Rory Z Fulcher and Dr Kate Beaven-Marks designed the story of Sam the Sleepy Sheep so that it is easy-to-understand for children (and parents) of all ages. The book works using special, sleep-inducing language patterns that help children to relax and feel tired, whilst keeping them engaged with a wonderful story and loveable characters. Put an end to stressful bedtimes with the calm and loving story of Sam the Sleepy Sheep. Who knew bedtime could be so easy!

“Dr Kate and myself not only have 20+ years of hypnotherapy experience between us, but we’re confident to admit that our methods are some of the very best in the industry, and are highly effective for both adults and children alike,” explains Rory. “It’s not exactly common knowledge among parents, but the fact is; children respond really well to hypnotic techniques, and they respond especially well to hypnotic stories. So we decided to help parents by creating a bedtime story that helps children drift off to sleep quickly, easily and in a relaxing, loving way that works for everyone involved!”

Continuing, “Sam the Sleepy Sheep is designed to help any child feel tired, and to encourage them to fall asleep naturally and of their own accord. By using strategic language patterns, a relaxing delivery and simple repetition, children are able to focus on the story, whilst relaxing into a 100% natural and resourceful state of mind. This allows them to easily go along with the suggestions to ‘go to sleep’ that are subtly included throughout the story, but without the usual protest. So rather than running around, arguing, crying and stressing out, simply by reading this bedtime story, parents are able to peacefully and quickly convince children that they do in fact feel sleepy, and actually it would feel really good to just go to sleep. It really can make bedtime the easiest and most relaxing part of the day, and that’s saying something.”
Readers agree, leaving five-star reviews. Chris Reed-Poulson comments; “This book makes bed time fun and quick. I no longer have to spend an hour reading 2 or 3 books, just one good book. I've been using this on and off for 2 weeks and it's worked every time. Eyes peeled for the sequel.”

Kayley Jones adds; “A must have! I have a 3 year old that's always struggled at bedtime, it's been hell. But I bought this book on pre order and everything has changed! Bedtime is no longer a fight, but a peaceful and very relaxing affair! Thoroughly recommend! A miracle, sanity saving book!”
