Fun illustrations and plenty of great tips not only for kids but older readers too! I'll probably start applying some of these tips in my own life! I think this would make a great gift for middle schoolers and older elementary schoolers who are just learning how to deal with new complex emotions. It's also a great refresher of coping mechanisms for those of us who already have some experience but sometimes forget to take a moment and engage in healthy everyday practices. There are plenty of fun activities and tips and blurbs plus cute visuals to keep younger minds engaged. I'd highly recommend.
You Can Live on the Bright Side is a really cool book for kids to learn more about meditation, gratitude, and how to live with tough emotions. I really enjoyed all of the different tips and exercises for how to calm yourself down or cheer yourself up. I also loved the tips on sleep, getting outside in nature, and how to be more creative. This is filled with lots of activities- it would keep a child entertained for days!
I definitely want this book for my students, my nephews and nieces. We adults think children and the young do not need to worry much about anything. This is so wrong! Everyone gets confused, worried and anxious from time to time. They are no different. So here's a little huglike trustworthy tips for them.
The whole book is such a delightful read. We don't need to read page to page everytime together but we would be doing a great favor by gifting this book to the ones who would definitely get the most much needed understanding, something which they would be able to get access to whenever they need some good practical advice about mindfulness, our body, some easy tips on meditation.
The book has parts about journaling which I feel would help a lot and it does make the book more fun and enjoyable.
Just gift this book! They would definitely appreciate it.
Thank you, Andrews McMeel, for the advance review copy.
