The story is about a tiny sweet dwarf who lives far away and ‎has ‎a ‎magical ‎kiss for children: ‎

"A kiss on the forehead makes you so, so clever, ‎
‎ You'll stay that way for ever and ever,‎
‎ While with a single tender kiss on the toe,‎
‎ Well, wait and see, you'll grow and grow.‎"

And in order to receive that magical kiss, children need to ‎eat ‎fruit ‎and ‎veggies, brush their teeth and go to bed on time!‎

Your kids can read the story with you or listen to ‎Jennie, ‎the ‎narrator (in case you ‎are busy), and practice their reading ‎skills. ‎Hopefully, ‎the lovely and relaxing music at the ‎end will help them fall ‎asleep ‎and enter ‎the world of sweet dreams.‎

After reading the book, your child will be looking forward ‎to ‎Sleep ‎Dwarf ‎visiting and will cooperate happily with the bedtime routine ‎‎– ‎which ‎means ‎eating (or adding) healthier foods, brush their teeth and go ‎to ‎bed ‎when you ‎tell them to (tiny Sleep Dwarf only visits when children ‎are ‎asleep ‎and he has a pretty busy schedule each night).‎

These are the benefits of reading The Sleep Dwarf and why it makes such a great gift for kids:

‎1. Rhymes. Benefits: help to improve reading skills by developing phonemic, rhythm, word families awareness and are easy to memorize and therefore encourage kids to join the reading.

‎4. Beautiful illustrations made by Justin Reese Olsen. Benefits: develop kids imagination, creativity and vocabulary

‎5. Six minutes of relaxing music at the end. Benefits: helps the child to fall asleep calmly and easily

‎6. Educational. Benefits: assists kids to cooperate happily with their bedtime routine and in ‎acquiring good and healthy habits
‎ ‎
‎7. Length - not too long, not too short (about 28 pages, half of them pictures). Benefit: Appropriate for young ages known for their short attention and patience span

‎8. Low price.‎‏ ‏Benefits: affordable price and a small investment that pays off in many areas and for the long term
