Mindfulness Moments for Kids: Breathe Like a Bear Kindle Edition
With this board book, kids will learn to control their breathing and soothe themselves slowly to sleep, just like a bear in hibernation! Best of all, it can be performed anywhere: in the backseat of a car, at home, or even at a child's desk at school. Based on Kira Willey's Parents' Choice GOLD Award-winning writing, this board book series (Listen like an Elephant and the upcoming Bunny Breaths) is the first of its kind and is the perfect tool to help children and parents develop a fun and consistent mindfulness practice.
Adapted from the successful Breathe like a Bear hardcover/trade paperback--a collection of mindful moments and exercises for kids--this board book is an easy-to-follow breathing exercise kids can use to manage their bodies, breath, and emotions.

—Susan Verde, author of I Am Yoga and I Am Peace
“I love this book! Breathe Like a Bear is filled with playful and imaginative ideas for helping kids connect to themselves, whether it’s their own strong energy or inner calm. Each moment that Kira has so elegantly sculpted and described conjures up delicious, beautiful, or whimsical, child-friendly scenarios. It’s exactly this fun and accessible style that will make kids want to try every one of these little gems that provides simple tools for big change.”
—Laurie Berkner, award-winning and bestselling children’s musical artist
Author Willey brings years of experience in children's music and movement to her debut.The book is divided into five sections ("Be Calm," "Focus," "Imagine," "Make Some Energy," and "Relax"), which are further sectioned into double-page-spread subtopics. Each spread includes one or two breath-centered exercises to encourage a habit and practice of mindfulness. Most, but not all, include references to wild animals and nature that are sure to appeal to young children. They are encouraged to use their imaginations as launch pads for being present: "Imagine you're a cloud in the sky" and "Imagine you're a sleepy lion, just waking up in the morning" are typical. The exercises are brief and excellent for short attention spans, though some offer opportunities for extension through pacing. The instructional text is simple enough for fluent readers to use in self-guided practice, though each exercise likely works best as a read-aloud. Betts accompanies each exercise with charming illustrations featuring foxes, elephants, fanciful clouds, and, of course, bears. This friendly book is sure to appeal to educators and caregivers looking for an accessible and kid-friendly introduction to mindfulness. A breath of fresh air. - Kirkus Reviews

This book is not even close to the same level of excellence as is the 30 mindful moments book. I do not recommend this book, there is no story line and the dialogue is non-existent.
The other book is fabulous; insightful and instructive.
Buyer beware of what you are ordering when ordering online.
