Companion to I Am Love and I Am Human
“A gentle, helpful tool for cultivating kid mindfulness.” —Kirkus Reviews

Discover the power of mindfulness in this companion to New York Times bestsellers I Am Human and I Am Love!

Mindfulness means being fully in the present moment. Children can learn how to manage their emotions, make good choices, and balance their busy lives by learning to be mindful, express emotions through speech, find empathy through imagination, and wonder at the beauty of the natural world.

“There are times when I worry about what might happen next and what happened before. The thoughts in my head are like rushing water, and I feel like a boat with no anchor . . . being carried away. I give myself a moment. I take a breath.”

Mindfulness encourages us to pay attention to our experiences (our feelings, sensations in the body, emotions, surroundings) without judgment but with kindness and curiosity. Scientific research has proven that there are many benefits to practicing mindfulness. With so many children suffering from anxiety, there is no better tool than learning to be mindful. And it’s never too early to get started.

Here is a gentle expression of the tenets of mindfulness, encouraging young children to breathe, taste, smell, and be present in the here and now. I Am Peace is a reflection of the power of mindfulness in all our lives. It is a perfect guide with which parents and teachers can help children pay attention to their feelings and learn to control their worry and anxiety.

Includes a guided meditation.

This book focused on the idea of mindfulness in young children. You do not have to already know what the concept is to access the content. The illustrations flow from page to page as you imagine yourself being carried away by worry and then grounded on an island. The color palette is mellow and calming, and the soothing imagery helps a child learn how to ground themselves in the present. As an educator, I found the guided meditation practice in the back to be especially helpful as someone that wants to learn more about mindfulness to incorporate in my lessons.
