A bird fluffs his feathers and greets the day with a song. You taste the bright pop of a berry on your tongue, sweet as summer. Raindrops patter down on your hands and face.
When we slow down and pay close attention, we learn what it means to be mindful. And when we experience our day with that kind of special attention, the world becomes a wonderful and magical place.

In Mindful Day, a young girl experiences mindfulness as she goes about the day with her family. Through Hopkinson’s lyrical narrative and Ng-Benitez’s delightful illustrations, you will explore feelings of gratitude and love, learn how breathing can calm our bodies, and discover how remarkable every moment can be when we experience it as fully as possible.

Mindful Day embraces the joy of living in the moment and gives children their first introduction to the life-changing skill of mindfulness.

[back cover]

One small bird fluffs his feathers and lifts his voice to sing up the sun.
This is a new day.
A mindful day.
Our day.
