What parent doesn't want to give their kids tools to comfort themselves in the midst of a rough day or to wind down before bed? The author of Big Breath sought to translate his experience of meditation -- helping him stay calm in the midst of overwhelm, let go of thoughts that churned in his head, and access core bravery and resilience -- in a way that would empower kids. Here, with illustrator Brittany Jacobs, William Meyer has done just that. Meyer's simple, gentle prompts, alongside Jacobs's wonderful illustrations, make meditation as appealing as a game. As kids close their eyes and find "a comfy spot," they are guided to stretch out and relax their bodies and to feel and picture their breath -- ocean waves? the wind before a storm? -- and their thoughts -- big or small? loud or quiet? Subsequent guidance allows kids to play with, rather than be controlled by, their thoughts. They learn to handle their worries, calm their fears, and build lifelong resilience.
