What's Puppy Mind About

Publisher Summary

In this picture book for children and adults, illustrated by Jim Durk, who is adored by thousands of children for his many Clifford the Big Red Dog and Thomas the Steam Engine books, a young boy discovers his mind is like a puppy, always wandering away, into the past or the future. He sets about learning to train his puppy mind to heel to the present moment. Through remembering to breathe, the boy becomes a stronger and more caring master of his puppy mind, keeping it in the present, if only for a moment. Includes a link to a discussion guide for parents and teachers.

Who Wrote Puppy Mind

author & illustrator
Andrew Jordan Nance

Hi Everyone! I thought I would tell you a little bit about myself. I am the author of the popular children’s book “Puppy Mind”, which brought a new dimension of cuteness to the practice of mindfulness in the form of a rambunctious, playful puppy. In my new book, “Mindful Arts in the Classroom”, I bring the puppy and a host of other friendly characters into the classroom to animate a 21-lesson curriculum centered around lively stories and easy-to-lead exercises for young students from kindergarten to third grade. There is a teacher’s guide to arts-based mindfulness exercises utilizing story-telling, theater games, and drawing to spark students’ self-expression, self-awareness, and social and emotional well-being.
