MY REVIEW


Practicing Mindfulness is such a fun and in-depth activity book that encourages young readers to being present in the moment. Yorkie Poo, Pearl, and Gigi the Gentle Ginormous Giraffe guide the reader through focused breathing, mindful listening, being grateful and generous, and so much more. 

 

Written by a licensed social worker, this book is certain to help children learn and grow. It includes fun narration through word searches, mazes, crossword puzzles, coloring prompts, and promotes mental health and living each day to the fullest.

 

The activity instructions are simple and clear, the animals are cute, and the activities provide loads of fun for children in a wide range of ages.
