Mindfulness and meditation are powerful tools-especially for kids!

In Mindful Magic, parents, caregivers, and teachers will find 23 simple meditations that kids can use to feel more calm, more loved, more grateful, and more at peace. Written by therapist Christy Monson, each meditation takes only a few minutes and includes deep breathing, relaxation, and positive affirmations. In a world with increasing demands on our children-technology, busy schedules, social pressures-research shows early routines with mindfulness help build flexibility, resiliance, and positive self-esteem. Plus, it feels great!

Accompanied by colorful, charming watercolor illustrations, meditations are organized into several easy-to-use sections.
