These are a handful of titles that are PERFECT for teachers/ parents that are new to mindfulness/ yoga and would like to begin to incorporate it into the classroom or at home.
Sitting Still Like a Frog by Eline Snel. This book is an informative introduction to mindfulness and its impact on child development; filled with practical exercises… a must have!
I am Peace and I am Yoga by Susan Verde are great titles for older children. It’s simplistic but a gateway to begin conversation. Read I am Peace and follow it up with breathing or read I am Yoga and have them follow along with the poses!
The Lemonade Hurricane by Licia Morelli and Jennifer E. Morris is a great picture book for the younger ones. It is perfect for mindfulness/ emotion conversation.
Breathe Like a Bear by Kira Willey and Anni Betts. This is my ALL TIME favorite for practical exercises: it is jam packed with visualizations and motion meditations. If you are ready to begin adding meditations into your child’s routine- this is the book to get you started!
