Relaxing Tales for Children: A Revolutionary Approach to Helping Children Relax

Relaxing Tales for Children: A Revolutionary Approach to Helping Children Relax

Author: Dan Jones Format: eBook Release Date: 15/01/2017

Relaxing Tales for Children is the sequel to Sleepy Bedtime Tales, which introduced a revolutionary new approach to helping children sleep, which Dan Jones had developed over 15 years ago during his time working in children's homes with children who struggled to fall asleep. Relaxing Tales for Children uses these same techniques, but the stories are focused on helping children to relax, rather than helping them to fall asleep. Each of the eleven stories follow the same characters who were in the stories in Sleepy Bedtime Tales as they take on different adventures. These stories are ideal for reading to children at home to help them to relax, or to read to groups of children at 'story time'. The target age range for these stories is 4-7 year old's, although the approach works with younger and older children than this age range. The stories have all been written to be read to children, rather than by children, so that they can relax and listen along with their eyes closed imagining the stories unfold.

Weakened by the loss of Normandy, King John faced insurrection by his disgruntled barons. With the assistance of the Archbishop of Canterbury, they drew up a list of their demands.

Realm Divided A Year in the Life of Plantagenet England

Author: Dan Jones Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 07/04/2016

1215 - the penultimate year of the reign of a king with the worst reputation of any in our history - saw England engulfed by crisis. Weakened by the loss of Normandy, King John faced insurrection by his disgruntled barons. With the assistance of the Archbishop of Canterbury, they drew up a list of their demands. In June, in a quiet Thames-side water-meadow, John attached his regal seal - under oath - to a charter that set limits on regal power. In return, the barons renewed their vows of fealty. Groundbreaking though 'Magna Carta' was, it had scant immediate impact as England descended into civil war that would still be raging when John died the following year. Dan Jones's vivid account of the vicissitudes of feudal power politics and the workings of 13th-century government is interwoven with a exploration of the lives of ordinary people: how and where they worked, what they wore, what they ate, and what role the Church played in their lives.

"e;Dan Jones has an enviable gift for telling a dramatic story while at the same time inviting us to consider serious topics like liberty and the seeds of representative government."e;Antonia FraserFrom the New York Timesbestsellingauthor ofThe Plantagenets, a lively, action-packed history of how the Magna Carta came to beby the author ofThe Templars The Magna Carta is revered around the world as the founding document of Western liberty. Its principleseven its languagecan be found in our Bill of Rights and in the Constitution. But what was this strange document and how did it gain such legendary status?Dan Jones takes us back to the turbulent year of 1215, when, beset by foreign crises and cornered by a growing domestic rebellion, King John reluctantly agreed to fix his seal to a document that would change the course of history. At the time of its creation the Magna Carta was just a peace treaty drafted by a group of rebel barons who were tired of the king's high taxes, arbitrary justice, and endless foreign wars. The fragile peace it established would last only two months, but its principles have reverberated over the centuries.Jones's riveting narrative follows the story of the Magna Carta's creation, its failure, and the war that subsequently engulfed England, and charts the high points in its unexpected afterlife. Reissued by King John's successors it protected the Church, banned unlawful imprisonment, and set limits to the exercise of royal power. It established the principle that taxation must be tied to representation and paved the way for the creation of Parliament.In 1776 American patriots, inspired by that long-ago defiance, dared to pick up arms against another English king and to demand even more far-reaching rights. We think of the Declaration of Independence as our founding document but those who drafted it had their eye on the Magna Carta.
