I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes.
I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Shelley Wilson’s latest non-fiction book: Meditation for Children: A Book of Mindfulness.
As a mother of three children, who are now adults, I’ve experienced the ups and downs of the emotional roller coaster of growing up. I’ve also had experience of working over 4 years with infant age children and over 13 years with secondary age children and I can totally appreciate each growth journey in a child’s life has new battles.
I found this self-help book by Shelley Wilson very easy to understand, I felt like the author was holding the reader’s hand as she took you through the guidance advice at the beginning of the book. Shelley Wilson has written 10 short stories to be read aloud with your child that can be used for meditation purposes. The author clearly shows at the beginning of each story how long it will take to read and she has kindly advised on areas to help and enhance the meditation piece. I do believe that these stories could work for children of all ages as no-one is too old to let their imagination run free and to let themselves be in the moment of the story.
For the first few stories I read aloud to myself and I found that I was feeling a sense of calm as the words from the author were breaking down any stresses and strains from the day.
I thought the concept of the book was brilliant and perfect for all ages. I totally believe meditation classes should be incorporated in to the school curriculum. A must buy for parents, all schools and children’s hospitals.
