Remmy and the Brain Train: Travelling Through the Land of Good Sleep
Nearly 80% of students are sleep deprived. Remmy and the Brain Train is designed to help improve a child's sleep, daytime alertness, mood and performance. Dr. James Maas uses his award-winning pedagogical expertise to create a fun multi-dimensional learning experience for children ages 4 to 8. The book is a follow-up to Maas's New York Times bestseller, Power Sleep, widely praised as successful in helping adults enjoy a happier, healthier and more productive life. Remmy and the Brain Train follows a tired young Remmy through a groggy day of exhaustion and confusion. He has trouble with math, spelling and remembering names, and is moody, upset and sad...but does not know why. That night Remmy is visited by the irrestible magical train conductor, Doctor Zeez, who whisks him off on an exciting adventure through the Land of Good Sleep. Here Remmy learns of the voyage his mind and body embarks on every night, and how developing good sleep habits makes him stronger, smarter, happier and healthier. Remmy and the Brain Train is illustrated by Guy Danella and includes a read-along, sing-along CD by award-winning children's songwriter/performer Suzanne Scheniman. A myriad of sound effects enrich the detailed whimsical illustrations depicting Remmy's world.
