Carmen Saldana – Down the Sleepy River

Let go of the day as you float along the sleepy river with the stars shining overhead, saying goodnight to the animals who are mindfully getting ready for bed.

‘Down the Sleepy River: A Mindful Bedtime Book’ is a peaceful bedtime story illustrated by Carmen taking the form of a relaxing journey, beginning up a mountain as the sun starts to set, travelling down a river, passing sleepy animals and gently floating into the moonlit ocean.

Available this September from Studio Press / Bonnier.
