Part of the Mindfulness Moments for Kids series, this mindful meditation exercise featuring a colorful elephant helps kids feel focused, wherever they are.
With Listen Like an Elephant, kids learn to slow down, listen to the world around them, and focus their minds–no matter how messy life becomes. Best of all, the exercise can be performed anywhere: in the backseat of a car, at home, or even at their desk at school. Written by Kira Willey, winner of a Parents’ Choice Gold Award, this board book series (also including Breathe Like a Bear and Bunny Breaths) is the first of its kind and is the perfect tool to help children and parents develop a fun and consistent mindfulness practice.
Adapted from the successful hardcover and paperback editions of Breathe Like a Bear–a collection of mindfulness moments and exercises for kids–this board book is an easy-to-follow exercise kids can use to manage their bodies, breath, and emotions.
