A First Book of Mindfulness
The perfect kid-friendly introduction to mindfulness.
Pedro’s friends — Yulee, Nick, Martin and Sally — are at his house for a sleepover. Pedro is moving in a few days, and he’s been feeling sad and worried about the change. To help Pedro feel better, his mom decides to teach the five friends about mindfulness. As the children practice focusing on their bodies, using their senses, paying attention to their feelings and accepting life as it happens, Pedro learns there are many ways to manage the stress of his upcoming move.
It’s an enlightening journey to peace and calm, and kids will want to be present.
“Cute colorful illustrations with easy-to-follow text about how mindfulness can be relaxing as well as help kids cope with stressful situations, with a special emphasis in turning to gardens and nature as well as to pets! Highly recommend.”
“The book centers on a little boy who is anxious about moving and his mother helps him to face and not deny those feelings. A good resource for both parent and child to be engaged with their emotions.”
“I'm not a huge fan of the mindfulness vibe. Something it feel wrong or are poorly explain or whatever. But... I have to say that this one really focus on the important basis of it all. Present it well and done a very good job bringing the essential and explaining them. Good surprise! ”
