Nada featured this book "The Rabbit Who Wants To Fall Asleep" back in August, and it seems to be getting more and more popular. Today it was featured on ITV's This Morning with Philip and Holly, and although the presenters seemed very sceptical the viewers comments from those who had used the book were very positive.
The book was written by a behavioural scientist as a new way of helping children to get to sleep, and it has been a number one bestseller in many countries:
