30 Mindful Moments for Kids to Feel Calm and Focused Anytime, Anywhere


An essential part of your back-to-school kit to help your child learn valuable calming techniques to use in the classroom.

Teaching kids how to deal with new and often overwhelming emotions is something parents often struggle with. Temper tantrums, tears, screaming, defiance, anger can be expressed verbally and physically – anytime and anywhere!

There are many how to’s that offer coping strategies for parents, but not as many that directly involve your child. Breathe Like a Bear is a sweet and practical children’s book written by Kira Willey and illustrated by Anni Betts that actually allows your child to be an active participant in learning to how to deal with their big emotions.

The techniques in the book teach children different coping strategies to manage their bodies, their breath and emotions – helping them to learn focus, calm and mindfulness.

Perfect for parents, educators, caregivers and of course children – Breathe Like a Bear is beautifully illustrated and contains 30 simple short exercises, themed around cute forest animals, that can be performed anytime and anywhere – like the car, the grocery store, at school or home.

Based on Kira Willey’s Parents’ Choice GOLD Award-winning CD, Mindful Moments for Kids, this one-of-a-kind book is sure to help kids find calm, gain focus, and feel energized during the day, and encourage families to establish a fun and consistent mindfulness practice, whether at home or on the go.
