About the Author

About the author: After traveling and practicing with many spiritual teachers, Olivia Rosewood became a nun in the yogic tradition in India, where she taught school children English rhymes and songs. When she returned to the United States, she became inspired to create fun and non-religious spiritual books for children. Olivia Rosewood authors children's books with spiritual themes, including Brave Enough to Bloom, Dimitry and the Moon, Beatrice is a Butterfly for Now, and Clia, The First Bird Ever. She was the writer for Harper Collins' Happy Yoga. She recently created, Please Meditate: It's Good for You, a non-religious meditation guide, workbook, and journal.

More About the Author

Olivia Rosewood is the author of Elegance of Being and Please Meditate: It's Good for You. She is also a Tai Chi gold medalist, most recently medaled in gold at the 2014 International Chinese Martial Arts Championships.

She is passionate about guiding meditation aimed at enhancing one's experience of peace within. Her most profound influence is Eckhart Tolle, with whom she has traveled and worked extensively, although she has meditated with many teachers all over the world. Always curious about meditation in its many forms, she experienced being a yogic nun in Ahmedabad, India, where she was fortunate enough to teach young children English. They were an essential part of the inspiration for her 7 spiritually inspired children's books, available now on Amazon as well as children's bookstores and museums.

Olivia has also authored, Please Meditate: It's Good for You, an all embracing instructional guide through several beautiful forms of meditation, helping the reader to find their perfect practice. It is supported by her youtube channel, Please Meditate, which gives the reader extra support as meditation methods are explored.

Being released in March, 2015 is Olivia's much anticipated Elegance of Being, which takes the reader on a exciting journey around the globe: from Fiji to India, George Harrison, Eckhart Tolle, Ammachi, taoists, gurus, celebrities, past lives, motherhood, and into the deep peace of being.

Olivia was the writer for HarperCollins' Happy Yoga by Steve Ross, and she has consulted on several best selling self-help books. Regularly featured in the "Mindful Living" section of the Huffington Post, she includes guided meditation v-logs within her blogs, with the aim of raising awareness and skill in blossoming meditators everywhere. She studied writing and theater at the University of Southern California, and enjoyed acting in several movies including Titanic and Almost Famous. She is a practicing yogini, meditator, and mom.

This book was suggested to me by an old friend who is an elementary school teacher. I wanted an elegant, visual way to help my 5-year-old son (who had developed quite a whining habit) understand the importance and the value of being grateful for all the wonderful things, large and small, that make his life a good one. WOW! Did this book meet and then exceed my hopes for that! The art work is lovely, the poetry is sweet, and the idea of stirring all the good things together in a pot and holding it in your heart was just brilliant. Such a great, concrete way to convey an abstract idea. I especially love the little pots you can cut out and carry in your pocket or your lunch bag or wherever to remind you through the day of your gratitude. My son does just that on the days he so chooses and it makes him very happy. He really is whining less and pointing out things he appreciates more.

I would also highly recommend the companion book Gratitude Soup Create Your Own. We had a terrific time together working through that book and I'm going to order another one to save for his little sister, who is not quite old enough to enjoy it yet. She does already like to carry a pot in her pocket, though.

Cute story, but it was a bit wordy for my first graders. I was able to shape the message into one they could more easily access to understand our monthly life skill of gratitude, but I'd rather not have to stretch it as much to make the book work!
