I Breathe by Susie Brooks
I Breathe is a brilliant way for children aged 3+ to learn about mindfulness, which is thought to improve children's emotional well-being and academic achievement.
Mindfulness is being taught in many schools and promotes physical and mental wellness, helping to improve children's concentration and their ability to manage emotions, anxiety and stress.
Becky and Ben buzz and hum like busy bees, Alice snuffles like a bouncy bunny and Lulu roars like a brave lion. They learn to be calm, peaceful, free and strong. With yoga, every breath takes them on an adventure and YOU can join in.
