Book review: My Amazing Day: a celebration of wonder and gratitude by Karin Fisher-Golton, Lori A. Cheung and Elizabeth Iwamiya

An “Amazing Day” has occurred! This is the first time anyone has reached out to me to review their book, so to kick things off, I am eternally grateful to Karin Fisher-Golton for reaching out to me on the Multicultural Children’s Book Day Face Book page and asking me to review her book. Thank you! thankyoume

Through the simple concept of giving thanks, this beautiful chunky board book, which is great for little hands, creates a sense of wonder through simple phrases that teach compassion, empathy, kindness and calmness. From the first “Today was amazing” the book is relatable to very young children and can be reiterated throughout the day, connecting daily life experiences to those in the book. This book is a daily mindfulness practice by playfully appreciating seeing, feeling, touching, smelling, tasting, sensing, experiencing, noticing, focusing and exploring.

This is an adorable book. It is a feel good, slice of happiness. I can’t wait to share it with the children at the child care center where I teach yoga. I recommend you share it with a child in your life.

I want to add a special shout out to the Lori A. Cheung for the photographs/illustrations. They beautifully capture the child’s sense of curiosity, joy and amazement!

Full Disclosure: The authors provided me with a copy of My Amazing Day to review. All opinions expressed are my own. iflew
