Published in 2013, this is still the original and best book on mindfulness for children. It includes 11 simple mindfulness practices to help your child (ages 5-12) deal with anxiety, improve concentration, and handle difficult emotions. There are also short examples of how mindfulness has helped children, plus many anecdotes and of course a description of what mindfulness is. It also includes a 60-minute audio CD of guided exercises read by Myla Kabat-Zinn. It’s especially useful now that more young people need help with calming down, becoming more focused, falling asleep more easily, alleviating worry, managing anger, and generally becoming more patient and aware. Includes a foreword by bestselling author and mindfulness for stress release expert Jon Kabat-Zinn, husband of Myla.
