This book is A+ adorable! The verses are, on a whole, well metered and really help to put you in the shoes of a very hyper, run around and bump into things, kind of kid (er…kitten). Striker is just go, go go; he is full of spunk and curiosity. After a bit of a tumble, he has to slow down and in that moment his mom jumps in and helps him center himself, bring his focus inwards, and from their the lesson about mindfulness is ingrained in him. This book is a great resource for any adult working with very young children on bolstering their social emotional learning and can be added to yoga classes and at home and classroom learning. The message is simple, but clear, and will encourage self-control, inner peace and a more positive outlook. Striker has a great sense of self . The book takes a fun and light-hearted approach to helping kids take control of themselves and to learn to slow down and smell the roses. The adorable illustrations by John Smisson just “POP” and add spot-on visual fun to Ms. Hughes story. #jkpbooks #emmahughes #mindfulness #johnsmisson
