We breathe deep and expand like the galaxy, We breathe out many thousands of stars, And if ever we start to feel panicky, This reminds us of just who we are. The perfect soothing read for quiet time, Happy gently encourages young readers to explore their emotions and the beautiful world around them, with stunning illustrations and thought-provoking rhymes on every page. Lyrical, emotive language encourages your child to step back and really appreciate their life within the moment. From savouring the taste of every meal to taking time to explore new places, there are so many ways we can slow down and find happiness. This beautiful poetry combined with ideas for how to practice mindfulness in the real world make this a wonderful introduction to finding inner peace. Katie Hickey’s gentle, charismatic illustrations take readers on a journey to a place of happiness and calm, with bright and uplifting colours and comforting scenes of nature and home. A great read for little ones who enjoyed Slow Down by Freya Hartas (Magic Cat Publishing) or Here We Are by Oliver Jeffers (Harper Collins Children’s).
