A noteworthy review of Everyday Mindfulness from School Library Journal on November 1, 2023
Using situations and role-play through stories, these titles take readers on a journey with the families inside each book as they demonstrate mindfulness concepts in common situations such as dinners or shopping trips together. While typical topics, like nature mindfulness and mindful eating, are covered, plenty of new areas like mindfulness in music and sports keep the interest of those familiar with these concepts. Some of the key concepts in these titles look at teaching age-appropriate responsibility, empathy, and self-regulation through routines and healthy habits. VERDICT: Libraries looking to develop their use of meditation and mindfulness practices in programming can use these to visualize how easily mindfulness can be woven into diverse activities.
