Summary
In our increasingly hectic world, even children are often inundated with responsibilities and activities, and end up feeling overwhelmed and stressed. Mindfulness helps focus our attention on the present - without judgement, and without worrying about the past or future. It can help us to enjoy the moments we might normally miss, as well as cope when emotions are hard to handle. We just need to take a pause! Everyone has the capacity to be mindful, including (especially!) children. This book is a gentle reminder to stop, take a break, and notice details even as we go about our busy day. Sometimes the simplest moments are the most important ones - if we don't let them pass us by! Follow a neighbourhood on a summer day as children and adults alike apply mindfulness to simple, everyday moments
Summary
"Children (and adults) live in a fast-paced, demanding and stressful world. It is often difficult to slow-down our children's minds and bodies. This book was written to teach children to take a pause in their lives, to stop activity, to understand quiet time, and to think about what they are doing and where they are going"--
