Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Nick Ortner comes an audiobook that will help children discover calm through the magic of mindful breathing:

Do you have the magic breath?

Let’s see... Take a deeeeeep breath in...and blow it out....

...and like magic, you can feel better just by breathing! Sometimes it’s hard to feel happy. But with this interactive audiobook, children breathe along as they learn how to make angry or sad thoughts disappear.

In a world that is sometimes too busy, with too many things going on, My Magic Breath will help steer children into a serene space of mindfulness, self-awareness, and balance.

A wonderful classroom and naptime story, perfect for fans of Susan Verde’s I Am Yoga and I Am Peace, Mariam Gates’s Good Night Yoga, and Deborah Underwood’s The Quiet Book.

Meh

Pros: Attractive cover illustration. Performance was ok.

Cons: I thought there'd be a brief storyline narrative to this book. For example, there's a young girl who struggles with managing her emotions; and so her grandad tells her the story of a dragon in medieval times who learns the skill of controlling his breaths (hence, My Magic Breath) to keep from setting everything on fire. I likely thought this due to the word 'magic' in the title and the picture of what I thought was a fire-breathing girl on the cover. I later realised after listening to the story (where you won't find any grandads or dragons) and taking a second look at the cover that's it's not fire, but a colourful (i.e. magic) breath that's coming out of the girl's mouth.

So, my bad for judging a book by its cover. I know you get what you pay for, but I'm not sure this is worth even the dollar-something and the credit card fee I paid. To be fair to the authors' though, it's not their fault I totally built up this story in my head and was duly disappointed by my own hyped-up expectations.
