Perfect... For nuclear families.
on 22 March 2017
I love so much about this book. It is such a simple and accessible way to introduce young children to meditation (my four year old loves it)
However I have dropped a star because I thought it was unfortunate they choose to base some of the pages on the assumption everyone lives in a nuclear family: "I see that Mommy is lovely... I see that Daddy is wonderful...I see that my sister is so kind.... I see that my brother is so playful...I see that my grandma and my grandpa are so sweet and gentle".
My children are fortunate enough that all those statements are true for them, but I could immediately think of several wonderful families who I would be uncomfortable recommending this book too, because those statements would be painfully untrue for them.
I think it's important that people are aware of that before buying.
It is otherwise a wonderful concept with lovely illustrations
