Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 4—Any child who's ever had a bad day and experienced strong emotions that they're not sure how to express will welcome this guide to mindfulness, and perhaps discover a great tool for sorting through emotions. This soothing picture book uses animal characters to show children how to meditate. It covers nine simple exercises that children can practice in various situations, such as "mind drawing" for focus, "protection circle" for security, "special place" for relaxation, and "mind clearing" for clarity. There are also exercises for wisdom, kindness, decision-making, self-control, and openness. The book empowers children with a great set of tools to keep in their "back pocket" as they encounter situations on a daily basis. The playful artwork helps readers envision how each exercise is completed. This book would also be a great manual for teachers to have on hand to help students. The answers to frequently asked questions about meditation at the end of the book are excellent; readers will come away understanding that everyone moves through life and these exercises a little differently—and that's okay. VERDICT Tastefully done. Even skeptics will find useful exercises for classroom management and helping children cope with conflict.—Amy Shepherd, St. Anne's Episcopal School, Middleton, DE

Review

"With simple illustrations of afriendly elephant and monkey, and backgrounds of sky blue and grassygreen, this book offers a terrific introduction to simple mindfulnessexercises. It is a useful guide for families and First-day classroomsand fills a gap in many library collections.
There are nine exercises in the book, each presented in clear language. Some children will read the exercises to themselves and try them out, while others will benefit from hearingthe exercise read aloud first. I could imagine children learning anexercise with a caregiver, and then reaching for the book as a guide towalk through the exercise again. This book could best be usedindependently by children age 8 or older due to the reading level andsome concepts, but caregivers will find ideas suitable for preschoolers, too." -Friends Journal, May 2016

"Stewart's peaceful tone is reassuring and calming in itself. A solid resource for children (and the adults in their lives) who are seeking to get a handle on tricky emotions and situations." Publishers Weekly, February 23, 2015

"This is an intriguing introduction to an ancient art. Stressed parents may find it helpful too." Booklist, March 1, 2015

"Ultimately, this will work best as a guide for an adult to use with a child in specific scenarios that might call for mindfulness and meditation. Keep this in mind as a possible introduction to medtiation for children." Kirkus Reviews, January 15, 2015
