When it's Time for Calm
Mindfulness is a huge buzzword at the moment. Everywhere you look there are people and companies extolling the virtues of mindfulness and self care. As adults, we can understand the need to take some time to regroup. For children, who are so busy, it can be a challenge. Thankfully, there are a host of great books to help children take some time for calm. The newest in the stable of mindfulness books is The Silence Slips In by Alison Hughes and Ninon Pelletier.
In a time when noise can be overwhelming and chaotic this lovely meditation will guide your readers and listeners to make room for silence. It is a reminder of the power of silence and the importance of making time everyday for it. Throughout the story, Alison Hughes reminds us of the things we can do when we need to invite the silence in, to have some peace in the chaos. Ninon Pelletier’s illustrations are calming and gentle and provide a concrete quality to the silence as it slips in and out. A wonderful story to have at the ready when a little calm and quiet is in order.
