Non Fiction Review: Meditation for Kids

Meditation for Kids by Tejal V Patel
Meditation for Kids: 40 Activities to Manage Emotions, Ease Anxiety, and Stay Focused
by Tejal V Patel

5 out of 5 stars

This book has easy and fun meditations for children that helps them to navigate tough emotions, calm their impatience, and learn to listen. The meditations are grouped in categories for increasing your positive energy, improving concentration and creativity, and opening your heart to kindness and compassion. There is an entire chapter of meditations just for bedtime, to soothe and calm the mind and body.
Each meditation has a cute illustration that demonstrates the imaginary things we are thinking of during the meditation. One meditation says to imagine that you are wearing a warm jacket on a cold day. You zip up the jacket from your belly button to your neck, and as you zip it up your spine straightens and you sit up tall. There is an illustration of an animal wearing a jacket with fall leaves all around them.

I love how imaginative and different all the meditations are! They really use creative ways to get a child to listen and be still. I love the meditations about analyzing your own feelings and finding ways to ask for help if you need it. It’s just right for little kids, and speaks to them on their level while guiding them to understand themselves. There are so many good messages about peace, compassion, and happiness in this book!

I can’t wait to share these meditations with my little nieces!
