The Calm Mindfulness for Kids book is one of our favourite books for teaching about mindfulness. It is full of information and activities, absolutely chock-a-block full of ways to help you learn to live in the moment.
Calm Mindfulness for Kids was written by a teacher/parent and is a collection of mindful practices that you can try either on your own, with family or a class.
The information and descriptions are clear. The illustrations and photos support understanding. There are also little hints for adults all the way through.
There are six chapters: Focus, Calm, Move, Change, Care and Reflect. Choose which one you need, when you need it.
In each chapter there is a mix of mindful exercises and crafts to explore either alone, with a friend or a class.
This book is hard cover and 72 pages of brilliance. We cannot recommend this book enough as a must-have book for your library – both professionally and personally.
Mindfulness can promote calm, focus, attention, proprioceptive & interoceptive awareness. When mindful movements are used which involve movement of the head and/or balance and coordination they can also provide vestibular input.
This book is a good one to have as part of a children’s Yoga, Calming, Meditation and Mindfulness library. It reinforces many important mindfulness concepts. It is a useful teaching tool and full of practical ideas and activities.
