Book 1 in the Feel-Good Fairy Tales series introduces a calming spin on a classic from #1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Verde

Once upon a time there lived a wolf who lost his huff and his puff. It was a BIG, BAD problem! One morning, the wolf came upon a peaceful little yogi doing sun salutations. The wolf wanted to huff and puff and blooow her hut down into a big pile of straw. But instead the yogi suggested, “Let’s meditate on that!”
Soon the wolf met a second yogi, and then a third. He may have lost his huff and puff—but with the help of three new yogi friends, can the wolf find his breath?

THE THREE LITTLE YOGIS AND THE WOLF WHO LOST HIS BREATH is a great picture book that teaches children meditation and breathing exercises to deal with big feelings like anger. The wolf gets angry sometimes (like all of us), and when he gets angry, he huffs and puffs and blows things. However, this makes other people upset, and the wolf doesn't really like the way it makes him feel. He doesn't really know another way to deal with his anger.

One day, he finds that his breath is gone and he can't even huff and puff. He comes across a little yogi with a straw house, and tries to huff and puff and blow it down, but he doesn't have enough breath to do so. The little yogi doesn't get upset and instead tries a breathing exercise with him. However, it does not help when he remembers how angry he is, so they go to the next little yogi (with a house of sticks) with a similar result, before going to the third little yogi, who asks questions the wolf had not been asked before. He then helps the wolf to find his breath with a new exercise.

What I loved: This book really walks the reader through these breathing exercises, all of which are valuable tools for children who might be handling big emotions. The book has themes about mindfulness and caring for people who might scare you (empathizing with bullies, as the pigs do for the wolf who tries to destroy their houses). These can be helpful for the right audience and suggests that anyone can handle their big feelings with extra thought. The breathing exercises are definitely easy to copy with the detailed instructions from the book, and this is really handy.

What left me wanting more: As a small point, the amount of words needed to convey the story is quite long, so this would be better suited to older picture book readers, but the fairytale element does make it seem younger.

Final verdict: Overall, this book is a great lesson in mindfulness exercises to handle anger or upset feelings. This book can be a great tool in introducing breathing exercises and/or the need to try several techniques before finding one that works for you.
