Recommended Books

  • A sweet rhyming poem picture book that celebrates the outdoors in all seasons. I love the fact that this book also explores little hands cleaning up after the seasonal fun.  Recommended for ages 3 and above. 

  • Fortunately, The Milk follows a dad's journey picking up milk for his children's breakfast.  There is adventure, there is time travel, and, of course, there is milk. The audiobook version is particularly entertaining.  Ages 9-12.

  • This book weaves gentle exercises with a heartwarming narrative and wonderful illustrations to empower children to manage the energies from the fiery volcano to the mountain quiet and still. By teaching to self-monitor, self-sooth, focus and relax, children are given the skills to jumpstart the day with energy and excitement and meet the adventures that come with mindfulness and perspective. Ages 0-8.
