Really great concept and execution

I got this audiobook with my (almost) 4-year-old daughter in mind. I listened through it myself, and I really like it. Unfortunately, I think she's a little too young to have the attention span to really listen and imagine the scenarios being described. But I think it will be great when she's a little older, so I'm definitely going to hang onto it!

Parents, get this for your kids!

What a charming rhyming introduction to meditation for children. I love the idea of people starting to meditate at a young age — a wonderful way to avoid a lot of unnecessary suffering. I wish I'd started to meditate as a child. With that in mind, I hope lots of parents purchase this recording and give their kids a powerful tool that will help them for the rest of their lives.

Truly imaginative

I wanted this book for my kids, so I listened to it first. It even had a calming effect on myself.
Pleasant listen enhanced by the voice of the author herself and a with a bit of unobtrusive music.
This will definitely introduce some calm into the day of my children.

This book put me to sleep... in a good way

I enjoyed this book. The pace was smooth and relaxing. This is a good book to listen to, both for you and your kids right before bed.

The narration and sound quality are excellent.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Calming and cool!

I was taking a drive with my family and put this on for my 6 year old. He resisted at first as he wanted to listen to a podcast but I told him we’d listen together for a few minutes and then turn it off. After the first chapter he was totally into it and wanted to listen to the whole thing. After chapter 8 or so he actually wound up falling sleep, which was a great thing. Very calming experience for him.

a perfect book for bedtime or stress time.

I am a parent of three children with high stress levels. At the end of the day they need something very calm and destressing. This is just the ticket. The narrator has a wonderful voice and the music in the background is perfectly calming. this book is worth it's price. your children will think so too.

our favorite!!!

This book and performance relaxes all of us!!! The music is perfect and subtle, the pace is great, and the transitions are really well done. The narrator has a great voice. This book is often requested by my 4 year old twins. A win with both of them is a rarity. they're so different.

Knocks my kid right out

First, the obligatory statement, "This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review".

We use the Calm app to put my twenty month old to sleep at night and this story fell neatly within that same vein. I’d say he falls asleep to it eighty percent of the time (fellow parents, you know that is a big win!) The concept of all of the magic doors is a lot of fun and I find myself imagining right along with my him. The author gives good imagery and detail of each room but does not linger. Makes you feel like you are floating from door to door.

The narrator has a very pleasant voice and reads well. Her accent seems to be from Australia (I’m guessing). Some may find that distracting but I have no issues and my son certainly does not. I would like to see chapter titles in the app so we could jump right through any magic door we wanted in the future. Overall, very nicely done. Will look for more by the author in the future!

Cute, relaxing

The narrator is perfectly clear and soft spoken, no parts of the guided meditation are startling. First she describes the world you find yourself in when you step through a “door” and leaves several seconds for mental contemplation and exploration before continuing to the next. Each vision has its own variation and mentally stimulating images that will please just about any child’s interest. I (an adult) listened to it before sleep and found it cute, easy, and comfortable.

Wonderful to help my daughter relax

Absolutely love this.
My 6 year old suffers acute anxiety, and has trouble switching off, this helped her to relax and will be on our repeat list.
Lovely narration, very soothing
