Last year I wrote about sensory overload during the holidays, especially for the children in our lives. Since I wrote that there’s a wonderful new book out that could be the early and beautiful gift that keeps on giving. “I AM PEACE – a Book of Mindfulness,” was written by author Susan Verde, who has written several other children’s books including “I Am Yoga.” This amazing book helps children manage their emotions while learning to be mindful, using imagination and experiencing the beauty of our natural world.

Christy Begien | Christy's Non Toxic LifestyleWhat better gift than NOW, during the holiday season when little ones are caught up in the frenzy of the holidays. This book offers everyday tools, including breathing and using all of their senses to learn to be present in the moment. Beautifully and simply written with colorful animation, I highly recommend this book to anyone with children in their lives. For those that can’t read, this book can be read to young ones, and the adults will even benefit! Click the book for a hardback copy and use your Amazon Prime for two-day delivery. Only $7.99!

Fun drawings and sweet rhymes, this book delivers insightful messages for readers of all ages. Parents?? Holiday craziness?? Winner of Creative Child Magazine’s Book of the year. Click the book to order in paperback from Amazon Prime for two-day delivery. Only $5.99, but what a gift!
