Publisher: Harper Collins
Age Range: 4 – 8

Format: Hardcover


Do YOU have the magic breath?

Let’s see…Take a deeeeeep breath in…and BLOW it out…

…and like magic, you can feel better just by breathing! Sometimes it’s hard to feel happy. But with this interactive picture book, children breathe along as they learn how to make angry or sad thoughts disappear.

In a world that is sometimes too busy, with too many things going on, My Magic Breath will help steer children into a serene space of mindfulness, self-awareness, and balance.

If you like interactive books like Press Here or Mix It Up, then you’re likely to enjoy this forthcoming mindfulness book for preschoolers and early elementary aged students.  It’s a new bedtime story favorite book of ours!

My Magic Breath reminds kids (and adults) that peace is just a single breath away. All you have to do is remember to breathe.  We all have “magic breath” and can use it anytime we feel mad, sad, nervous or worried. Throughout the book, readers are instructed to breath in their happy or sad thoughts and then blow them out onto the page.  My kids love reading this book and pretend to blow the illustrations right off the page.

I think My Magic Breath is a beautifully illustrated book that explains the concept of mindfulness and deep breathing in a fun and easy to understand way for little readers. A great book to read for story time at the end of each day or in a kids mindfulness group/class.

Your turn: Do you practice mindfulness with your children?  Feel free to share in the comments.
