I have a friend that created a “self-help” section in her 7-year-old’s book shelf. The books she stows there are about things like breathing or centering yourself or being present, but all of the books are geared for little ones. So the next time her daughter is flipping through fictional favorites, she may also flip through books with important real-life themes. If you want to teach your kids about mindfulness, here’s where to begin. Six books that will help your children begin to nurture their inner health.
2. What Does It Mean to Be Present? It helps children consider mindfulness but in the context of social situations.
4. Master of Mindfulness Love this one, since it’s written by kids for kids.
5. I Can Handle It It uses positive affirmations and confidence building to equip children in challenging moments.
