About The Book

Explore the world with Charlie in this simple, lovely introduction to mindfulness; teachers and parents will have fun guiding kids through the innovative activities.

So many books aim to present mindfulness in a way suitable for little kids; this one actually does it. There’s no jargon or tough concepts—just natural-language exploration of the senses and surroundings and breath; just simple, heartfelt wishes for the wellbeing of others. Creative and thoughtful mindfulness exercises will help teachers and parents gently and naturally guide children and will invite families to connect and be fully present with each other.
