not until chapter 9

so, if i wanted a book that talked about the meaning of mindfullness, this is it now how about a routine for children starting from chapter 1 not starting at chapter 9, and then talk about very basic methods.

This is so good

I bought this book for my daughter when I realized that the app played all night or until I turn it off. These are three individual stories that help my daughter relax and sleep when she's wired at bedtime. We probably listen 4 times a week. I always end up asleep too.

Great for relaxing a busy mind

I play this audio for my 5-year-old boy as soon as he goes to bed. Before a chapter is half over, he is always sound asleep. Works wonders for my boy.

Help your kiddo relax

I am a pediatric physical therapist. This book is well written and easy to follow. Even though there are age recommendations on the activities, all of these activities could be altered to suit any age child (or adult!).

Beautiful

The meditations are read so beautifully that I also enjoy listening to them with my daughter. A great little audiobook for active children that need help winding down.

Rubbish

Loads of talking for parents. I expected meditation exercises for children, I was wrong. The other reviews must be bought. Money wasted on this.

It can help young people pay greater attention

Meditation can contribute directly to the development of cognitive and performance skills and executive function. It can help young people pay greater attention, be more focused, think in more innovative ways, use existing knowledge more effectively, improve working memory, and enhance planning, problem solving, and reasoning skills.

Children enjoy the guided imagery of these storie

I regularly play one selection from this recording every day at rest time in my combined K-1 grade class. While first graders believe they have graduated from Kindergarten nap time, all of the children enjoy the guided imagery of these stories.

Deal with emotions and calm

As a parent one to the greatest gifts we can give them are tools to deal with emotions and calm themselves. This audiobook is an effective tool in helping my 4 year old son and 7 year old daughter wind down and pull themselves together - even during those times of hyper activity induced by over exhaustion.

Not for kids

Overview of mindfulness for kids rather than a practical usable guided mindfulness exercises. Very theoretical and not what I was after
