jBOARD BOOK Willey
Kids

"Part of the Mindfulness Moments for Kids series, this mindful meditation exercise featuring a sweet bear cub helps kids feel calm, wherever they are. With this board book, kids will learn to control their breathing and soothe themselves slowly to sleep, just like a bear in hibernation! Best of all, it can be performed anywhere: in the backseat of a car, at home, or even at a child's desk at school. Based on Kira Willey's Parents' Choice GOLD Award-winning writing, this board book series (Listen like an Elephant and the upcoming Bunny Breaths) is the first of its kind and is the perfect tool to help children and parents develop a fun and consistent mindfulness practice. Adapted from the successful Breathe like a Bear hardcover/trade paperback--a collection of mindful moments and exercises for kids--this board book is an easy-to-follow breathing exercise kids can use to manage their bodies, breath, and emotions."
