Want to turn a dull day into a wonderful day? Make it a mindful day!
When we slow down and pay close attention, we learn what it means to be mindful. In Mindful Day, early readers follow along as a young girl brings this special kind of attention to the various activities of her day with her family.
Through Hopkinson’s lyrical narrative and Ng-Benitez’s delightful illustrations, kids will explore feelings such as gratitude and love, learn how our breathing can calm our bodies, and discover how remarkable every moment can be when we experience it as fully as possible.
Mindful Day also shares positive examples like being patient, appreciating the little things, and showing empathy, while giving children their first introduction to the life-changing skill of mindfulness.
