I am Peace is a picture book about Mindfulness designed for children.
This book comes from the best selling team that created I Am Yoga. It is a delightful expression of the tenets of mindfulness. It encourages children to breathe, taste, smell and be present in the here and now. It also includes a guided meditation.
The text describes a child who is overwhelmed, and then shows them using mindful strategies (eg taking a breath, feeling the ground beneath their feet) to calm them themselves.
Teaching children the life skill of Mindfulness can help them learn to regulate their emotions, feel connected to self and others.
I am Peace is a beautifully illustrated hard cover book with simple text. It is a good book for sharing special moments together one to one or as a whole group.
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 catalyst for discussion, too.
