Introducing my new children's picture book, AWAKE, about a young child struggling with insomnia and anxiety, and the companion activity book, AWAKE: Activities for Better Sleep, now available on and!
AWAKE, written and illustrated by Susanna Fields-Kuehl, is told from the vantage point of a young boy on his quest to capture the moon when he is unable to sleep. Aided by three animal companions—cat, owl, and fox—he comes to realize that he is no longer alone. A perfect bedtime reading for children (and caregivers) struggling with insomnia and anxiety, AWAKE teaches a simple and effective breathing meditation to aid in achieving restful sleep. AWAKE also showcases the phases of the moon in a unique and beautifully illustrated blend of watercolor paintings and embroidered textiles.
 AWAKE: Activities for Better Sleep is the perfect companion to the picture book AWAKE, also by Susanna Fields-Kuehl. AWAKE: Activities for Better Sleep will awaken your child's creativity and help them dream new possibilities to relax into peaceful sleep. Inside this activity book, you'll discover:
• Coloring pages exploring feelings
• Art, creative writing, and theater activities
• Tips for achieving better sleep
• Step-by-step breathing and meditation exercises, and
• Templates to make your own comfort animal
