Gr 3-6–This step-by step guide pays homage to meditation’s Eastern roots, explaining where the practice originated, how it is an important component of Buddhism, and who the Buddha is. The author describes the physical and emotional benefits and lays out various methods, such as sitting meditation, meditation with movement, and meditating on the cycles of nature. Instructions are clear; every meditation session builds from an exercise meant to center practitioners. Dupeyrat offers recommendations on how often and for how long to meditate. The streamlined format mimics the practice that it aims to illuminate. Charming, lighthearted black-and-white cartoons can be found on each page.
VERDICT Written in the second person, this engaging book empowers readers to use their newfound skills and teach parents and other family members. A solid choice where patrons are seeking titles on meditation and mindfulness.
