Calm Down Workbook for Kids (Peace Out): Stories, activities and meditations to help children relax, get to sleep, manage emotions and more (Paperback)
Peace Out: Calm Down Workbook for Kids is a collection of relaxation stories for children that focuses on mindfulness and imagination to teach social-emotional skills. The vibe is calm and friendly, providing a safe space for kids to relax. The author speaks directly to her readers — children and their parents. Her approach has always been to speak to children as if they are curious and capable because they are!
The book includes 40 small sections, with each section including a two page story designed to help kids calm down, relax and think creatively about various interesting subjects, followed by a yoga relaxation exercise and a mindful "moment" to help them control their thoughts and emotions.
Many pages also include a creativity exercise or a QR code that takes readers directly to the Peace Out podcast episode on which the entry is based. It's enough to ensure kids relax, gain control of their emotions or fall asleep easily, as needed.
