(From our news partner at KWQC-TV 6) What started as a lullaby to comfort a little boy before bedtime is now a published book and it's going to benefit the Stead Family Children's Hospital in Iowa City! Nyilah Sulaimana of Bettendorf has written several manuscripts over the years, but it was four years ago when her son inspired her to write “Mason and Milo: A Journey Through the Stars.” “Sweet Dreams” is a lullaby Sulaimana wrote for her then five-year-old son, Mason, when he wasn’t having good dreams.

In the book, Mason is ending his day reading a story about the planets. After reading, he says a prayer with his mom, asking for better dreams. With a magical mask, Mason and his favorite teddy bear, Milo, travel through the solar system learning about all the planets.

Nyilah and Mason will be donating 50 box sets of ‘Mason and Milo’ to patients at the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital in Iowa city.
