Review: Meditation Is An Open Sky by:Whitney Stewart

Meditation Is an Open Sky: Mindfulness for Kids
About the Book:
Feeling mindful is feeling good! You know when you're having a bad day, you have that wobbly feeling inside and nothing seems to go right? Find a quiet place, sit down, and meditate! In this daily companion, kids of any age will learn simple exercises to help manage stress and emotions, find focus, and face challenges. They'll discover how to feel safe when scared, relax when anxious, spread kindness, and calm anger when frustrated. Simple, secular, and mainstream, this mindfulness book is an excellent tool for helping kids deal with the stresses of everyday life.  

About the Author:
Whitney Stewart is a children's book author, meditation teacher, and a born adventurer. She has traveled to Tibet, Nepal, and India and teaches mindfulness at Tulane University and to children and teens. Her most recent children's book is A Catfish Tale: A Bayou Story of the Fisherman and His Wife. Whitney lives in Louisiana, with her husband and son.

My Review:
 Such a sweet children's book meant to teach them how to overcome stressors in their life by meditating upon them and imagining them as thought bubbles. And each child has the power to pop them in an effort to do away with them forever. The soft colors and the familiar images of an elephant and monkey will definitely play to their softer side as they read how to accomplish banishing the evils of the day.

 This book is meant for the mainstream conscious people and it is along more of the secular ways of looking at things. My readers know that I'm all about God handling my stresses but I also like to give you all some opinions on other books as well, just to give you a wide range. It is a book that will give you just that!

**Disclosure**This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from Pump Up Your Book.
