This is the first time I have ever seen a meditation book aimed for young children. The book looks friendly and inviting. My boys loved that it used elephants to show what to do.
There were many different ways to do meditation. I was able to read them to my boys and help them pick out on they would want to do. It was something that id not last very long, but I think will be helpful in the future.
After all the different ways to meditate, it talked about how it can be hard to start but just to stick to it starting a little at a time. This is definitely a book we are going to be using more.
