What parents are saying
"I'm not sure what it is about the cards... but they trigger such positive thoughts that our boys just tuck under the covers and smile as they drift off to sleep. Bedtime is less of a battle. The cards are motivators to tuck in and share some quality time." - Fiona, mom of Caelan and Devyn, age 5 "Using Little Stars really creates a special time for important and foundational conversations between us." - Pam, mom of Leslie, age 4

Little Stars Bedtime Cards were created by Shannon McQuillan and Linda Komori of Kamloops, BC. Drawing on her use of affirmative inquiry in the workplace, Shannon developed a routine of asking her young sons affirming questions before bed. She found that this kind of bedtime ritual helped her kids to slow down, open up, talk, and settle into sleep more easily. Looking for a way to translate her family's valuable bedtime ritual into a parenting tool that could help others, Shannon approached her friend Linda, an artist and parent of her own two young children. Linda created the Little Stars characters as a way to make it easy for kids to relate to the themes and talk about their own feelings.
