Everyone has different feelings about Sports Day at school. Sally feels excited, Mateo feels nervous, Manisha feels angry, Caleb feels sad, and Tom feels relieved. But they all soon discover that emotions are like the weather. Sometimes the weather feels pleasant and sometimes it feels unpleasant. But just like the weather outside, the weather inside will change too. This book on mindfulness for children helps readers build their emotional awareness, enjoy pleasant feelings, and remember that unpleasant ones will pass.

Everyday Mindfulness Series
The Everyday Mindfulness series explores how a mindful attitude to life can enhance enjoyment, promote a sense of calm and confidence, and provide young people with skills they can use every day. Mindfulness can help us improve concentration, deal with difficult emotions, sleep better, and even boost our immune systems. Mindfulness practices and exercises are integrated into each story and expanded on in the section for adults at the end of each book. Readers are also invited to "press the pause button" at various points in each story to mindfully reflect on their own present-moment experiences. Also available is a free downloadable leader's guide for the series with additional information, discussion questions, and activities.


Paul Christelis has worked as a clinical psychologist, psychotherapist, and teacher. He is director of School of Moments, an organization dedicated to teaching mindfulness to individuals, groups, and communities. He lives in London, England.

Elisa Paganelli is an Italian illustrator, visual designer, and writer for a lifestyles column for an Italian newspaper. Her passion for images and words have become the job to which she devotes most of her days and nights, accompanied by a cup of tea and four cuddly pets. She lives in Modena, Italy.
