When Wee Society came along, I thought their books had been MADE to be here at my store. Interactive, thoughtful and so funny - they continue to impress me with their well designed invitations for kids to write and draw and be a part of the story itself. Their newest offering takes into consideration not just children's amazing imaginations but also their mental health. Enter "Be" A Mindfulness Journal -I'll let them tell you a little more about it here;
"We’re excited to share something we’ve been working on for well over a year. When we started the process (pre-pandemic), it felt important — but now, as kids are feeling stress like never before, we can’t wait to get it into little hands.
Be: My Mindfulness Journal teaches kids (ages 6-12) the brain science behind finding calm, and how to feel feelings without letting them take over, so they can handle challenges and build resilience.
Designed to support social emotional learning and to make practicing mindfulness fun, it’s full of activities and creative thought-starters — like making a mantra, breathing exercises, sending secret wishes, Connection Cards that encourage unplugged conversations, and a zen-out-while-you-color-in poster."
Age Range: 6 - 12 years
