I am Peace: A Book of Mindfulness by Susan Verde – UN Book Club (SDG 3: Good Health and Well-Being)

A lovely narrative storybook to lead younger children towards mindfulness and inner peace, thoughtfully illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds, that captures the thread of anxious thoughts as they run away. Reading the story leads the child through a mindfulness exercise, relieving stress and increasing well-being. The simplicity of the approach and gentleness of the illustrations and words have a direct effect on the reader. It encourages a sense of peace that can also be shared with others.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vnR5HDfR3JI (Right click and “Open in new tab”)
