Book Review - Practicing Mindfulness: Emma Lou the Yorkie Poo's Activity and Coloring Book for Kids by Kim Larkins


This one is a must have for any young child, especially the way mental health is playing such a high role in the younger generation. On top of which, the characters are absolutely delightful, and the activities are really fun too.


The author explains mindfulness, staying in the present, and focusing on yourself, your feelings, and sensations, in small easy steps that a child can understand, and will want to learn more about. As well as the importance of being kind and caring towards yourself and others. My favourite section was filling in the sun rays and dancing like nobody is watching ;-)


I also found this to be a great conversation starter for parents and carers if they wanted it to be.


I would definitely recommend this for a fun, feel good factor book for a child that also benefits their thoughts and perspectives.
