Synopsis

Striker, Slow Down! A calming book for children who are always on the go by Emma Hughes

Striker the cat is unstoppable! He thinks that there is too much fun to be had, and no matter what his mama tells him, he never slows down. One day, a bump to the head brings this busy cat to a standstill. Will Striker finally listen to his mama and learn to make time for a little calmness?This charmingly-illustrated picture book for ages 3-6 aims to teach busy children about the benefits of taking time to sit quietly and clear their mind. Touching on the principles of mindfulness, it provides the perfect introduction to the differing feelings of chaos and calm and encourages children to find balance in their increasingly busy lives.

Reviews

Striker, Slow Down is a fun and easily accessible way to explore the importance of slowing down and taking time to rest and relax. It's designed to appeal to younger children with beautiful illustrations and told in rhyme
