A playful board book about the pillars of mindfulness from the bestselling creators of Hello!Lucky!
This pun-derful guide to mindfulness offers many fun teaching moments for kids and their caregivers, covering topics from taking deep breaths to acknowledging strong feelings and working to let them go. Filled with bright, adorable illustrations in Hello!Lucky’s inimitable style, this playful, sturdy board book is sure to give the preschool set much to ponder. As a bonus seek-and-find element, readers will find at least one rose on every spread—an additional reminder to stop and smell the roses!
"It teaches crucial lessons that our youngest kids need desperately. As the world becomes more complicated, noisy and troubling for kids, it is incumbent upon the adults to teach our littlest ones how to engage with their emotions so they can grow up happy and healthy. And frankly adults who read this book to the littles will benefit as much as the kids." —Laurie Grossman, Author and Inner Explorer Director of Social Justice & Educational Equity
