Breathe Deep, Little Sheep

A Calm-Down Book for Kids

Self-Care for Kids

A kid-friendly introduction to self-soothing and mindfulness with adorable animal friends. A child’s “very first step” into mindfulness where the story’s short rhymes can be used as soothing mantras, paired with delightful illustrations of baby animals working through anxious situations. This book does double duty as a self-help story providing great comfort beyond the pages.
