Soothing guided imagery & relaxing melodies create a nurturing atmosphere that can help children and their parents drift off to sleep. Sleep Well for Kids is part of the Live Well Series from Jeff Gold and Janet Montgomery.
I was contacted by Jeff to see if I was interested in reviewing this CD. Since I am a mom to a persnickety toddler who isn’t always a fan of sleep, I jumped at the chance! We received the CD and Natalie loved looking at the animals all throughout the front, back and inside covers.
Since it was nearing bedtime, I put the CD in and let it play. Natalie actually sat on my lap, for an extended period of time. Usually she is running around like crazy. She seemed very interested in listening to the CD. She would repeat the animal names and make the animal sounds that she knew. She really did seem relaxed to me! While she didn’t fall asleep on me, she went to bed shortly after listening to the CD. I think that she really enjoys listening to the guided imagery and all the different animal sounds. This CD is a keeper in our house!

About Jeff Gold
California native Jeff Gold is a composer/musician who creates imagery through music; images that are emotional and melodic, restorative and uplifting. He composes soulful relaxing instrumentals which have received the attention of Wellness Centers, Spas and Music Therapists for their tranquil and healing qualities.
Combining beautifully arranged acoustic guitars, piano, strings and flutes, Jeff has released three CD’s “Soul of a Mountain” in 2006, and “Escapes” in 2009 and his latest, “Simple Treasures” in 2012. All three are a soothing and relaxing collection of melodies ideal for music therapy, yoga, massage, scenic drives or just winding down.
Jeff’s 14-year old special needs nephew, Russell, became a big fan of these soothing instrumentals because they help to calm his overstimulation. Russell then passed his uncle’s music on to his other friends on the autistic spectrum and they found that it is helpful to them as well.
Jeff is also a contributing writer and music advisor to EXPERIENCE | PREMCHIT resorts, located throughout Europe and Asia, researching and writing articles on the physical, mental and therapeutic effects that are possible with music.
Jeff composes and arranges all of his own music, playing the guitars and pianos, and creating other instrumental sounds by computer. He also does his own mixing, mastering and editing; a skill he perfected as a television editor for shows like MTV’s “Making the Video,” “Baywatch,” “MadTV” and “The Office.”
Jeff has also teamed up with hypnotherapist, Janet Montgomery to produce seven guided imagery CD’s for “The Live Well Series.” Topics include sleeping soundly, stress management, and coping with cancer treatment.
