When Little Crab wakes in the night to find himself all alone he has to think hard to remember what his parents have taught him. Can he self soothe back to sleep?

Little Crab Self Soothes is a ‘self-help' book for young children who struggle with anxiety. A bedtime story with a difference, Little Crab Self Soothes is intended to be read in two ways, with the overall aim being to help parents and carers teach children the basic skills required to self soothe and remain calm in a variety of situations. Carers can read the book all the way through to reassure children that their special people will be there waiting for them when they wake in the morning. Alternatively, the book is read to the point at which Little Crab falls asleep and the breathing exercise is repeated until the child is fully relaxed and/or asleep.
