The ABCs of Mindful Breathing
Children will learn the basics of mindful breathing along with their ABCs in this playful and interactive board book.
In Alphabreaths, children learn their ABCs along with the basics of mindfulness through fun exercises and illustrations they'll want to come back to again and again. Each letter of the alphabet teaches a simple mindfulness or compassion-based practice to help kids focus their thoughts, hold positive feelings for others, express gratitude, and more. It's as easy as ABC!
Kids will open their arms wide like jaws on Alligator Breath, take a big breath and sing "Laaa" on Voice Breath, and imagine blowing out birthday candles on Cake Breath. With Heart Breath and Wish Breath, they will remember to fill their heart with gratitude and send good wishes to others.
Alphabreaths offers a meaningful introduction to mindfulness for children, all while keeping them delighted with imaginative inspiration and hours of fun.
