I love this little book and my 4yr old with Aspergers Syndrome loves it too. He asks for it from time to time, and when we do read it (even if I pick it out for him when he's having a bad day) he calms straight down. He's fascinated by the pictures and the gentle lyricism of the story is the perfect medium for explaining how useful meditation can be :) You have my heartfelt thanks!!
My now 4 year-old understands that mummy sits in a room quietly and meditates for 20 minutes everyday but that's about it. This book helped me to share why I do this seemingly strange activity and some of the benefits. This is a great introduction if you'd like to share your own meditation practice with a little one.
I bought this for my nearly 3 yrs old boy thinking it might be a bit too early to understand. He absolutely loves it at bed time and not only. He sits crossed-leg like the peaceful piggy and breaths, very cute indeed! Highly recommended for every child as a gentle introduction to stillness and calm.
