I can't sleep!"
"I don't know...I'm nervous and I can't stop thinking, thinking, thinking..."
"Do you want me to teach you how to breathe?"
"Breathe? But I already know how to breathe!"
"But have you ever stopped to see how you do it? Where the air comes in and out? If it fills more of your belly or your chest? If you are doing it slowly or quickly?"
Breathe is a conversation between a boy and his mother at bedtime. But this conversation can happen at any time, in any place.
This introduction to mindfulness presents a collection of illustrated exercises to help little ones become aware of their breath and their body.
Includes a Note to Parents & Caregivers that describes the exercises and their effects in more detail.
Ines Castel-Branco founded Fragmenta Editorial in Barcelona with Ignasi Moreta, and so submerged herself in the fascinating world of the typography and layout of books. With the birth of their three children, Ines returned to making models (now of castles, zoos, doll houses...), and they discovered the marvels that can be made with recycled objects (which are explained on Ines's blog, "Mama recicla"). Their love of children's books also grew, until they decided to start this collection.
