Mindfulness for Kids in 10 Minutes a Day is full of simple meditations, breathing exercises, and more to help kids make mindfulness a habit.

This standout among mindfulness books for kids encourages them to:
  • Be mindful all day—Help kids start their mornings right, check in with themselves throughout the day, and reflect on their thoughts and feelings before bedtime with mindfulness exercises organized by the time of day.
  • Explore 4 key themes—Kids will practice every area of mindfulness with activities built around its main themes: calming, focusing, reconnecting, and responding to negativity.
  • Dive deeper—Bonus exercises included with each activity allow kids to expand their mindfulness practice, from writing a reflective journal entry to breathing mindfully while they're going about their day.
