“What Does It Mean to Be Present” by Rana DiOrio, illustrated by Eliza Wheeler

This is a delightful, well-illustrated children’s book that introduces kids to the concept of approaching activities mindfully: noticing when someone needs help, waiting patiently, learning to focus on what is happening right now. There are strong benefits to parents as well when we teach our children mindfulness. It challenges us to set aside our technological devices, our distractions, and our stress and learn alongside our children – mastering a technique that can reduce irritability, anxiety and stress.
