"Let me tell you about the time I found myself feeling lost and so very befuddled. I was stuck in a place full of chaos and haze, with my mind all distorted and muddled."
Even as adults, we've all been there. Imagine how much more stressful it is for children just learning to understand their emotions. The line comes from Land of Now, a book designed to help kiddos navigate through confusing and frustrating feelings. The book, and its companion, Land of I Am, follows an adorable narrator on a journey to discover mindfulness. Now helps littles deal with fear, worries, and anxiety, while I Am helps them build positive self-esteem. They're thoughtful gifts for back to school, birthdays, or even just because. (Oh, and reading them aloud is good for grown ups, too. These lessons never get old.)
