It's Always There is the first book in a new series that addresses the rise in young children's anxiety and stress in a practical and helpful way. This beautiful children's meditation book promotes peace, calm and happiness in a way children can relate to. Come on a journey through cloudy days when you don't feel so good and learn a secret trick to help you find your sunshine again.
It's Always There focuses on breathing patterns as a practical method of helping children deal with situations they find stressful. An intriguing story introduces the technique in a way that is easy for children to follow, and workbook pages encourage them to focus on the here and now, let their troubles go and envisage their thoughts as passing clouds. Beautifully illustrated, it is rare to find such a delightful book aimed at the mental health and self-confidence of younger children.
