Relax Kids: The Dream Machine
By: Marneta Viegas - Our Street Books, $21.95
Description: This book helps children open the door to the magic of their imagination and gives them the keys to new and exciting possibilities.
By developing their imagination, children can increase their ingenuity, creativity and ability to problem solve.
With 100,000 combinations of story visualizations, children will have a different adventure each time they step through the portal of their imagination.
Verdict: First off, this is yet another incredibly expansive, thought-provoking, colorfully inventive and wholly creative genius of a book from the uber talented Marneta Viegas!
My daughter has three (3) rugrats and each one has their own special (medical) disposition and thus can be a real rodeo of characters at any given juncture of the day, trust me!
So, and as we all know, being a parent can be tough, but it is also just as tough (if not more so) on the children, who have (and showcase) these medical disposition characteristics (all bundled up within blankets of uncertainty and stressful worry).
For they just do not know yet how to rightly handle all their conjured dreams and daily aspirations, their imaginations sponges in desperate need of nurtured guidance and more!
Thus, within Relax Kids: The Dream Machine - Create your own Magical Adventures, Marneta Viegas provides a door to the magic of these very same spawned imaginations whilst at the same time providing keys to new and exciting possibilities (for both the child and the parent, of course).
Hence, author Marneta has culled together a book (which also comes threaded throughout each page with a fun adventure map!) that not only seemingly covers all aspects of how aiding the development of your child, in such exciting and eagerly acceptable manners, can lead to those children increasing their ingenuity, creativity and provide an eventual ability to problem solve thereafter, but one that comes complete with 100,000 combinations of story visualizations!
Trust me when I say that no matter how entwinned in the complex nature of daily growth your child is, and how present or distant they may seem at any given juncture, Marneta’s prose within Relax Kids: The Dream Machine (which features illustrations by Nicola Wyldbore-Smith and Sarah Adams along with the overall design by Amber Sutton) is a MUST-HAVE, and powerful resource for all parents that have children showing signs of wanting to know more about their dreamscapes; for this book of meditations is just perfect for those very moments!
