It’s always worth taking time to gaze at Eric Carle’s wonderful illustrations and in this pocket-sized book they are used to help children develop mindfulness. When your mind feels busy, says the text, just stop and breathe; an illustration of Carle’s bright flowers and butterflies encourages just that. Simple instructions are presented alongside Carle’s invigorating illustrations, and the world does indeed feel better, more hopeful. A friendly and useful approach to learning a life skill that will benefit lots of children and adults. ~ Andrea Reece
