The Quest for Rest is a delightful book that is unique in explaining the importance of sleep to the young child in a fun and understandable way, while also informing and supporting parents in helping their children develop healthy sleep habits.

Our goal is that every child in our district would have The Quest for Rest in their hands as they pass through Kindergarten/Grade 1.

My four-year-old daughter and I both loved the story! And I really appreciated the evidence-based tips at the back of the book, since I've been so frustrated by all the contradictory advice about sleep online. The tips even helped me create healthier habits.

It is with the greatest pleasure that I bring your attention to the ZzzPower Sleep Program and its related educational materials.
This program is founded on sound science and clinical experience. As a child and adolescent psychiatrist, I commonly encounter children who experience sleep difficulties. These can lead to mental and physical health problems if not addressed.
This program, with its resources for educators, age-appropriate materials for youngsters, and advice for families, represents state-of-the-art in sleep science. That it is packaged in a format friendly to busy teachers, parents, and children is part of its secret to success. I encourage you to read through the materials and give the lessons and advice a try.

ZzzPower is a phenomenal program that's helped some of our learners at Fraser Wood Elementary understand the positive and powerful effect sleep has on their body. The program equipped them with tools they need to support a good night’s sleep. I'm so excited that ZzzPower is now available to all our learners in the Surrey School District!

Limiting screen time for the kids and us parents making sure that the kids sleep early gave our kids the message that sleep is important. Now they know when it's time to stop thanks to the ZzzPower for Kids.

Poor sleep habits are known to have a detrimental impact on physical, emotional and academic functioning. During my three decades as a child psychiatrist, I have watched many children and parents struggle to change these entrenched sleep patterns. The Quest for Rest offers much-needed help by combining two books in one and motivates children to take the lead.
This book is a key piece to solving the sleep puzzle.
