Shango and The Amazing Magical SLEEPING Spell is one book in a series which aim to deal with a number of childhood issues, such as fears & phobias, anxiety, confidence and anger. This Book deals specifically with sleep.If a child consistently has difficulty getting to sleep, this could be due to a passing phase, dietary or psychological issues. In the latter, anxiety or depression might be a cause and if so please see Shango’s other books relating to those issues. Shango hopes to help your child sleep with his magic spell, but if the condition persists and you are concerned, medical or professional advice should be sought.Shango Books are based around the central character of Shango Tidbog. Shango and his friends, using ‘Magic Spells’, aims to help children overcome common issues such as sleeping, anxiety, phobia, anger and sadness. Tidbogs live in both the real world and the ‘Dream World’, where they have the power to help their ‘special friend’ (the child) and confer spells upon them given by Tidbog wizards, known as Wizbogs. ALL the books have a common thread to improve positivity and happiness within the child. Therefore not only will the books alleviate or even nullify the child’s specific issue but in addition, aim to leave them with a happier and more positive disposition.The books are not intended as traditional stories for children; the emphasis is on the book being a tool for the parent to help their children overcome the specific childhood issues that concern the child or parent. The books use repetition and direct suggestion to instil in the listener a positive message. They are not intended as a replacement for medical treatment but more as an addition to it where applicable.The Books adopt a threefold approach; first, similar to traditional children’s books, they endeavour to endear the child to the characters and story. Secondly, using direct suggestion they aim to help the child with the condition dealt with in the story, for example; anxiety. Lastly, there are pages provided to encourage the child to draw on and to interact with the story after the first reading, the following day or after a nap. These pages serve to include the child more with the ‘process’ and to help the child to ‘open up’ giving the parent an insight into the child’s thoughts and feelings…..or just to have fun with Shango.
