Publisher's Summary

This accessible and fun guide to meditation and mindfulness is the perfect introduction for young children.

Meditation does a body good and can even help kids as young as four or five. This practical guide is gentle, clear, and a pleasure to use. Kids will learn how to focus on their breath, on the sensations in their body, and on the sounds around them to help them relax, settle their busy minds, and understand their emotions. Narrated by author Mariam Gates, the audiobook offers step-by-step directions and a repeating refrain:

"Breathe in, and fill your whole body. Breathe out, and relax your whole body."

It's an invigorating first experience of mindfulness that can be shared by parents and children at home or by teachers and students in the classroom.

Critic Reviews

"A jewel-toned palette, sweet animal faces, and soothing landscapes - combined with a text infused with care - ensure that a child or adult can pick up any part of this book to take a needed break from stress. An impressive, thoughtful collaboration." (Kirkus)

 "A calming introduction to meditation." (School Library Journal)

"Mariam Gates presents the gifts of a powerful spiritual practice with irresistible charm and joy. Meditate with Me is a wonderful offering to parents and children alike, a gentle guidebook pointing the way to presence, mindfulness, and peace as we navigate life’s ups and downs - day by day, moment by moment, and breath by breath.” (Katrina Kenison, author of Mitten Strings for God: Reflections for Mothers in a Hurry)

Love it!

I am a yoga teacher who has been teaching adults and children for over 11 years. My son, 4yo, has literally been practicing meditation since birth with me. We listened to this together today and we both loved it! I highly reccomend it!

Great tool for whole family

Both the content and the speaker were stellar. This is a great tool for both the young and the young at heart. I am using it in my classroom for quiet time and in the calming corner.
