"From the central image of sitting still like a frog to the spaghetti test for physical relaxation, the images, metaphors, and practical exercises are pitched at the right level to really engage children—this book and CD will prove a valuable resource for our family’s spiritual explorations.”—Juno
"Kids are keen to learn, often live in the moment, and are capable of industrial-
strength attention. They also struggle with thinking they’re not good or cool enough. Sitting Still Like a Frog
teaches children mindfulness through an amphibious friend who sits very still and breathes—preserving energy and paying attention to everything going on around him. Many practices fill the book and audio CD, and all of them remind us, and our children, just how easily thoughts can move us off our lily pads."—Mindful
