The Present Is A Gift written & Illustrated by Elchanan Ogorek

This is a great gateway book into mindfulness for children. The book uses strong, positive affirmations drawing on very creative connections to animals and their inherent qualities and how that ties into mindfulness through thoughts and actions. The art work is fun and quirky and the animals are really enchanting. This book makes mindfulness very accessible for the young. It is a wonderful addition to the mindfulness for kids books! I highly recommend it.

Thank you to Elchanan Orgorek for sending me a copy of his book. All opinions expressed are my own.

It’s Always There A children’s meditation book for mindfulness, calm and happiness by Lou Lou Rose (including Magic Word cards)

This is truly one of the best children’s mindfulness books that I have come across. The book is full of thoughts that pique the interest and understanding the art of mindfulness is easily accessible for children and is written into lovely, flowing rhyming sequences. The artwork is adorable. I love the textured painting juxtaposed onto photographic backgrounds and sprinkled with computer-generated flowers. It’s completely endearing! The additional Magic Word cards are beautiful affirmations for calm, clear thinking, positive feelings of self love and are perfect addition to this wonderful book. I really enjoyed this book and I know I will use it in my kids classes. It is fun, educational and practical. I highly recommend it!
