"We love this book. The story and the artwork both brings a smile and teaches a lesson; it accomplishes this for us and our son. For decades, there has been research on the importance of teaching emotional intelligence to children as early as possible. As new parents, we wondered how to do this and instill values such as openness, mindfulness, and acceptance (of yourself and of others). Andrew Newman's book series accomplishes this beautifully wrapped in delightful artwork and wonderful stories with a lesson."
THE BOY WHO SEARCHED FOR SILENCE, Helping young children find silence within themselves.
Follow the adventure of our hero, The Boy, as he runs from the noises of life, hoping to find Golden, Peaceful, Blissful Silence. Join in his amazement as he discovers Silence where he least expects it.
This one-of-a-kind book will help children to use meditation and gratitude to help with the stress and constant stimulation of the outside world. The book ends with The Gratitude Spiral, a short exercise to help children to be thankful, to help them change their perspective and also to relax and sleep.
