In her debut picture book, the mega-bestselling author of the Matched series introduces children to mindfulness and being grounded in the present.
Everyone experiences a wide range of emotions, and some of them are not easy to handle. Bestselling novelist Ally Condie has crafted a thoughtful and atmospheric meditation that illustrates some practical ways to stay grounded when the world feels overwhelming. We can feel, taste, look, hear, or smell. We can be creative or express our thoughts. We can do kind things for others. We can ask for a hug.
Here gently instructs young readers how to slow down, be present, and to use all their senses in order to appreciate the beauty around them, to connect with nature, and to feel calm in their bodies and minds. By getting out of our heads and focusing on one thing at a time and being present, we realize that these hard feelings are not as big and scary as they seem.
