We have several of these lovely and enlightening books for children.. My grandchildren adore these stories, breathing at the beginning in preparation for relaxation and sleep and love a star or sticker from the end of the book.
I gifted a set of these books to a friend for a baby shower . We all loved reading them before the baby was born. Such wonderful stories.
Wanderful book. My friend whom I gifted to loved it as well.
We really like “the laughing witch” and “the hug who got stuck.” This book is not as strong as those in terms of the rhythm, pictures, or kid buy-in.
These are such wonderful books! These cute stories start with simple, easy mindful meditation breaths called "snuggle breathing" they only take a couple minutes. Its meant to create a calm and peaceful connection of both the child and parent so that as the story is read they both are able to appreciate what the true message is within the story. Each story reminds the reader to treat all life with respect, treat people with kindness, to use your heart and go within, to be greatful and to love and cherish the earth. The stories are cheerful, happy tales and the illustrations through out each book are very good and help keep a childs interest. There are even colorful stickers at the end of each story that you can place on a star on the back cover of the book to keep track of your snuggle breaths. The breathing in the beginning really helps quiet your childs mind and get them ready for the story. If you do these quick, short breaths with your child just as they say in the book it will work!. Helping your child at this young age to breath through times that are difficult or when they may need a more clear and quiet head is a wonderful tool.
