My friend, Brigitte, who is also passionate about sharing mindfulness with children just started her Kindness Classroom YouTube Channel. I love the energy she brings to her videos and what’s really cool is that she reads mindful children’s books on her channel!
You’ll find one full book below. See if it’s something you’d like to read or show to your kids.
Teachers have told me how they have read this book to students in their virtual classrooms and how it’s an effective way to get kids to participate.
And I’ve gotten emails from parents who are astonished to see their four and five year-olds self-regulating with this exact mindful breathing method :) It works so well because it’s easy, fun and memorable.
Story Time With Brigitte: Mindful Calming Breathing
Here’s Brigitte reading “Baby Shark Saves The Day” a fun mindful children’s story that teaches mindful breathing. I can vouch for the book, after all, I’m one of the co-authors, if you didn’t guess already :) You can find the book in print and on Kindle here on Amazon if you like it.
Are you ready for mindful story time? Click play below and see for yourself :)
