About the Author

Stress Free Kids founder Lori Lite has created a line of books and CDs designed to help children, teens, and adults decrease stress, anxiety, and anger. As a parent, Lori spent two hours every single night trying to settle her young son down to sleep. Her daughter developed stress related night terrors and Lori herself became sick from anxiety. In an effort to help her family she created a story for her children that would entertain them while introducing them to research-based relaxation techniques. That moment began a journey that now includes 8 books, 6 CDs, and 2 curriculums. Ms. Lite's books, CDs, and curriculums are considered a resource for parents, psychologists, therapists, child life specialists, teachers, and yoga instructors. Her Indigo Dreams audio book/CD series has been awarded the CNE Award of Excellence. Ms. Lite has been interviewed and written articles for several media outlets, including: Family Circle, NY Times, MSNBC, ABC Radio; CBS News; USA Today; Web MD; Stress Free Living; Mind, Body, and Soul; and Job Club with Tory Johnson. She has also been featured in several publications which include Prevention Magazine, Parent Guide New York, Family Circle, Kiwi Magazine, and Aspiring Woman. Lori is a certified children s meditation facilitator and Sears Manage My Life parenting expert. She gained national attention when she appeared on Shark Tank, an ABC/Mark Burnett production. Lori has just released a relaxation music line. Indigo Dreams: Kid s Relaxation Music and Indigo Dreams: Teen Relaxation Music. Check her Stress Free Kids website, Face Book and Twitter for updates.

Format: Paperback
First I will begin by listing the programs/CD's/books that I have purchased from Lite Books. 4 books: A Boy and a Bear, The Affirmation Web, A Boy and a Turtle and The Goodnight Caterpillar plus 5 audio CDs: Indigo Dreams, Indigo Ocean Dreams, Indigo Dreams: Garden of Wellness, Indigo Teen Dreams and Indigo Dreams: Adult Relaxation plus: Children's Stress Awareness Curriculum Designed for Youth Education.

Next I will say "THEY ARE ALL AMAZING!" For 9 years I worked as an advocate for children in a homeless shelter for women and children. I was constantly challenged with finding resources that were short, effective, and held the attention of the children. I was able to find resources but not all in one spot, I had to piece a little of this and a little of that to reach a fully rounded program that worked. The tools that Lori Lite created within each book and each CD offer short, highly effective programs that hold the attention of children. And best of all it is a package deal! You do not have to pull from any other program because the tools that she gives you are all you need. I am now an HHP and use the books and CD's when working with children of any age to simply give them powerful tools that they can use in daily life and hopefully carry into teen and adult hood. In my opinion Lite Books offer the best resources available to the health and wellness of children on the market. Within my own life I use the CD's as a nightly staple within the bedtime process of my children. They have not been able to stay awake long enough to finish even one of the stories on the CD yet. That is how relaxing the CD's are.

I am a stress consultant and work with children frequently."The Goodnight Caterpillar" is the "Goodnight Moon" for the new millennium. This is the only relaxation book I know that actually tells a story where the listener gets to follow along and implement a proven relaxation technique with the characters.

Kids love this story and I am amazed at how the children learn the techniqueof muscular relaxation without a lesson. This is an excellent way for children to manage stress, anxiety and fears.This book is destined to become a classic bedtime story that will be relaxing children through the next millennium.

My child was a ball of stress. She woke up worring about school. She came home woring about homework. She went to sleep worring about not sleeping well enough. Until this book...

Lori Lite manages to take simple concepts and weave them with her creative magic. She takes a cute Caterpillar and teaches children how to relax and unwind and deal with stress and anxiety.

The transition my daughter has gone through is amazing. I was almost at the point of considering medication to help her deal with anxiety but thankfuly her books came to the rescue.

I hope Lori continues to write more books and I recommend all of her books and especially her CD Indigo Dreams for our children.

Maybe she can write some for adults.

This story adds a new spin on an old journey! A caterpillar too stressed out to see clearly and too ridden with anxiety to accomplish the task ahead of him is shown how to relax by himself! In addition to this being my child's absolute favorite bedtime story,it is the favorite of her first grade class. I read to the class once a month and even though I bring other books, they always ask me to read this one. The class is intrigued by the caterpillar and the bright water color illustrations. They love to relax with the adorable caterpillar.

I especially like the author's choice of vocabulary. Kids today are smarter than we think and they appreciate being spoken to in an intelligent manner. If the occasional child is challenged by words like, "nourished, confident, and accomplish," then it is a perfect opportunity to teach them the meaning of these wonderful words that are meant to fortify our children's minds and bodies. In today's stressed out, rush about world, this book should be mandatory!

I am an elementary school teacher, and a grandmother. I have used this book extensively to teach my young grandchildren to relax into sleep. Although this is a bedtime story, I have also used it in my 4th grade classroom as a way to relax children before we begin any high stakes testing. The more I have repeated this exercise, the better the children learn and the better they test out. Even the children have noticed the difference when we read this book and when we don't. This is a fabulous addition to my curriculum.

I teach meditation classes to children ages 5 and up. I often read this story to my students before a relaxation meditation. They love the story and enjoy pretending they are caterpillars who need relaxation afterward.
