Part of the Mindfulness Moments for Kids series, this mindful meditation exercise featuring a colorful elephant helps kids feel focused, wherever they are.

With Listen Like an Elephant, kids learn to slow down, listen to the world around them, and focus their minds--no matter how messy life becomes. Best of all, the exercise can be performed anywhere: in the backseat of a car, at home, or even at their desk at school. Written by Kira Willey, winner of a Parents' Choice Gold Award, this board book series (also including Breathe Like a Bear and the upcoming Bunny Breaths) is the first of its kind and is the perfect tool to help children and parents develop a fun and consistent mindfulness practice.

Adapted from the successful hardcover and paperback editions of Breathe Like a Bear--a collection of mindfulness moments and exercises for kids--this board book is an easy-to-follow exercise kids can use to manage their bodies, breath, and emotions.
“[A] restrained approach sets this book apart in the growing realm of mindfulness books for children…. A wonderful adaptation of mindfulness practice into board-book format.” —Kirkus Reviews
