Editorial Reviews

Review

"Sitting Still Like a Frog introduces the basics of mindfulness to children in an easy-to-understand and playful way. It guides children in the cultivation of presence: presence of mind, presence of heart, and presence in the body. This is something we are all capable of but usually don't cultivate intentionally. Why not start young in training those capacities? The world nowadays is so complex and fast-paced that knowing how to ground oneself in the present moment is an absolute necessity to make sense of the world and to continue learning, growing, and contributing what is uniquely yours to contribute in this world." —from the foreword by Jon Kabat-Zinn

"Sitting Still Like a Frog teaches children mindfulness through an amphibious friend who sits very still. . . . 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 magazine

"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 magazine

“An informative Foreword by Jon Kabat-Zinn introduces this valuable guide on mindfulness and meditation for children. Eline Snel is a seasoned parent, therapist and teacher. Her book is filled with practical suggestions and examples of how mindfulness can help to cultivate attentiveness (internal and external), relieve stress, recognize moods, relax, and deal with what is happening within and around us. The CD provides eleven guided meditations. For parents, teachers and anyone ages 5 to 12 (and up).”
Light of Consciousness magazine 

“In a simple and accessible way, Sitting Still Like a Frog describes what mindfulness is and how mindfulness-based practices can help children calm down, become more focused, fall asleep more easily, alleviate worry, manage anger, and generally become more patient and aware.” —Children’s Books Daily

“Whether you prefer the book or CD, Sitting Still Like a Frog: Mindfulness Exercises for Kids and Their Parents is an excellent tool for helping kids wind down before bed.” —Mind Body Green

2.0 out of 5 stars Book not like its cover or Amazon page. Disappointed
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on November 14, 2018
This book looks good on the amazon page, but when you get down to reading and using it, it's not that great. The author has basically hijacked another mediation book, and repackaged it.

Which I didn't mind, I thought the book would have nice illustrations for children (like the picture the cover) and meditation scripts tailored for children, but the text of the book and accompanying CD are more for adults.

Really you can get any mediation book, think yourself how to adapt it to children use a frog as an example of sitting and you have this book. I was hoping the work was already done for me.

The book waffles on about the benefits of mediation and examples of success, its about 100 pages and its 26 that the first exercise starts. I wanted practical tips to help my child start mediation not be sold the benefits of mediation.
