I Am Peace [hc]
A Book of Mindfulness
Written by Susan Verde & illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds
Mindfulness means being fully in the present moment. Children can learn how to manage their emotions, make good choices, and balance their busy lives by learning to be mindful, express emotions through speech, find empathy through imagination, and wonder at the beauty of the natural world.
From the bestselling team that created I Am Yoga, I Am Human, I Am Love, and I Am One comes a gentle expression of the tenets of mindfulness, encouraging children to breathe, taste, smell, and be present in the here and now. Includes a guided meditation. 32 pages
"Yoga instructor Verde and illustrator Reynolds reunite... in this introduction to mindfulness featuring a worried child who focuses on the moment... Vignettes of the child in a balance pose, feeding birds, and meditating beneath a tree (magically sprouting from fallen birdseed) reinforce messages of kindness, compassion, and self-awareness as worry melts into bliss... A gentle, helpful tool for cultivating kid mindfulness." -Kirkus Reviews (Ages 3-9)
