“A classroom full of animals demonstrates the principles of mindfulness in this guide to meditation for children”
This book is an instruction on mediation for little ones. If you and your littles want to learn to meditate, I think this is a fabulous option! It talks you through a breathing exercise to help you recognize your emotions and be more mindful of your body and breathing.
