Description

ForeWord Magazine Book of the Year Award Finalist

iParenting Media Award Winner

You are a child. It doesn't see fair.
That sometimes your body can hurt everywhere.
There's a way to feel better, something children can do.

The ideas in your mind can help you get through.

When a child is in pain, imagining scenes that are soothing or uplifting may help reduce the discomfort. Imagine a Rainbow is a beautiful tool for introducing children to the idea of using their imaginations to cope with pain, whether by itself or as part of a more comprehensive pain management plan.

The book also includes an extensive Note to Parents that explains the techniques of imagery and deep breathing, and how to help children use them.
