Gugu and Penfin Kickstarter (Ryozan Park)
Written by BCCJ

Rachel Ferguson of BCCJ member Ryozan Park has launched a Kickstarter for an exciting new children’s book, designed to give not just children a good nights sleep, but parents too. We at the BCCJ highly recommend watching the video and seeing the book do its magic. If you are able to, please do consider contributing to the Kickstarter.
“My two-year-old daughter did not like going to bed. I tried everything I could think of to lure/lull/bribe her to sleep. Nothing worked. I was tired. It was past my bedtime by the time she slept.
So, I tested many of the top-rated bedtime books. Most were fun or cute – or both – but they didn’t help Grace fall asleep. Then I found a couple that, read multiple times in a soothing tone, relaxed her so much that eventually her little eyelids drooped and she nodded off peacefully. Hallelujah!
I was so inspired by the power of these sacred texts that I decided to take the best elements of each and create my own story. The magic ingredient is an audio file: after you read to your little one, the story can be played on repeat while they drift off to sleep — leaving you with a little magic time to yourself!”
