What a brilliantly inspired, not to mention well timed, delightfully illustrated and written story that quickly captivated my daughter and genuinely effected a change in her attitude and disposition!

Brief back story: having become a student of mindfulness and trying to keep a positive attitude myself, after learning how much it has vastly improved the quality of my life to do so, I have often wondered how I could teach my daughters to embrace this concept so that they can live more peacefully. I was thrilled to come across this book and ordered it not expecting it to arrive so soon. As it was being delivered, my youngest had gotten hurt and was very upset. After calming her down and making sure she was ok, we opened and read the book.

She quickly became engaged with the story, sometimes even nodding in agreement with Marty as he talked about how "his thoughts keep going in his head". At the end, her disposition was entirely changed. She was calmer and relaxed. She also was very excited to see there were more books to read coming soon!

When I asked her what she liked best about the book, she flipped to a specific page. I won't give any spoilers but I think the fact that a child as young as she, was able to enjoy, absorb and retain the overall theme of the book and point out the most valuable point that anyone, adult included, could hope to grasp, speaks volumes for the authors ability to tap into and deliver in a meaningful way, a most beautiful message.

We very much look forward to reading many more of these wonderful stories that not only entertain, but most importantly create an opportunity for us as parents to further discuss the value of mindfulness with our children.
