Book Summary

Where My Breath Loves Me

Mindfulness is a tool for everyone in the world. With daily practices, we become curious to what is happening right in the moment. Clarity of the moment helps our mind to be calm, gentle, and compassionate. Best of all, recognizing each moment enhances our lives. With mindfulness, young children maximize learning experiences and that enriches their personal discovery.In this book, Where My Breath Loves Me, a mindfulness teacher, Mr. Gentleheart, uniquely invites his students into the world of mindfulness with a simple inquiry, “Where do people feel the love from their breath?” With the help of compassionate adults in her life, April’s curiosity gradually evolves into appreciation of her own breath at the next level throughout daily activities in places such as the choir room, classroom, art room, gym, in nature, the swimming pool, coffee shop, and her own bed. She keeps wondering, however, when she would discover the exact place that she can connect with her breath. April’s beautiful discovery is finally revealed right in front of Mr. Gentleheart.With its sister book, My Breath Loves Me, Where My Breath Loves Me teaches young children how to appreciate each moment of their lives by getting along with a life-long best friend: the breath.

What readers say about the book🧐

Where My Breath Loves Me is a very sweet story and a great reminder of how important breathing really is. I think, in today’s hurried times, we all need this reminder to slow down and pay attention to our breath once in a while! I know that when I stop and take a few deep breaths, it relaxes, calms me down, and helps me think or focus better. What a wonderful technique to pass onto children! We should all be more mindful of our breath!
