Getting children to go to bed and stay there during the night can be a challenging and frustrating task for many parents. Help for this common problem comes in the form of a book: The Sleep Fairy. This is the tale of Molly and Katie, and their struggle to stay in bed at night. After their bedtime routine, including brushing their teeth and getting into their pajamas, the girls get into bed, only to get up again minutes later; Molly asking for a glass of water and Katie wanting another good-night kiss. “Go back to bed!” their parents tell them. Then on one special night, their parents read them a story about the Sleep Fairy. Her poem promises that if children are “still and quiet,” and “stay in bed,” she will leave a surprise under their pillows for the morning. That night, the girls did not stir, and the family rested in peace. The following morning when Molly and Katie woke, they looked under their pillows to find their prizes; “a shiny new red ribbon” for Molly's hair, and a “tiny, lovable doll” for Katie. Each night, from then on, their parents read them The Sleep Fairy. And every night that they did, the girls stayed in bed, resting quietly, until morning. This children's story is good parenting advice cleverly disguised. Authored by Janie Peterson, (founder of Behave'n Day Centers), this book illustrates and teaches a method to reinforce good behavior in children when it comes to bedtime, by giving them a small prize; but only after the child follows the bedtime rules. With colorful pictures, a fun story that kids can relate to, and a positive message, The Sleep Fairy is bound to become a family favorite.

Janie Peterson has worked with children and families for more than twenty years. She is a Licensed Mental Health Practitioner (LMHP) in the state of Nebraska and holds a master's degree from the University of Kansas. Janie has devoted her career to helping children with chronic and/or severe behavior problems.Peterson wrote The Sleep Fairy, her first children's book, so that parents everywhere would be able to apply her method to their own families' bedtime routines. The Sleep Fairy ensures that bedtime is a positive and enjoyable time for parents and children alike. Macy Peterson, Janie and Roger's middle daughter, is a student at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. When not busy with her studies, Macy enjoys writing poetry and playing the piano.
