Learn the power of mindful breathing through the fun and interactive exercises in this book.

With The Breathing Book, young readers discover the power of mindful awareness through a series of breathing practices and engaging activities designed to calm the mind and body, set positive intentions, and spark creativity and imagination.

A book that’s much more than just a book, this interactive offering from Christopher Willard and Olivia Weisser invites readers to bring their full attention to the sights, sounds, and tactile sensations that arise as they explore the practices on each page with awareness.

With simple instructions and delightful illustrations, you’ll use your breath to bring this book to life by turning the pages … balancing the book on your head, hand, or belly … tracing shapes and labyrinths …“reframing” troubling thoughts and feelings … sending kind wishes to people and our planet … and many more activities that can be practiced again and again.
