Staff Reviews

There seem to be lots of books out about mindfulness and relaxation for kids these days. I picked this one up because, as a new yoga student, I was curious what it had to say about breathing. I loved it because it actually has readers doing the breathing in just the right way, page by page. It's simple enough for a two-year-old and yet still useful for any age beyond. Bright illustrations accompany examples of when a person might want to practice mindful breathing. Light and fun and yet oh-so-helpful. — Susan

— From My Magic Breath: Finding Calm Through Mindful Breathing


From New York Times bestselling author Nick Ortner comes a beautiful picture book that will help children discover calm through the magic of mindful breathing:

Do YOU have the magic breath?

Let’s see…Take a deeeeeep breath in…and BLOW it out…

…and like magic, you can feel better just by breathing! Sometimes it’s hard to feel happy. But with this interactive picture book, children breathe along as they learn how to make angry or sad thoughts disappear.

In a world that is sometimes too busy, with too many things going on, My Magic Breath will help steer children into a serene space of mindfulness, self-awareness, and balance.

A wonderful classroom and naptime story, this book is perfect for fans of Susan Verde’s I Am Yoga and I Am Peace, Mariam Gates’s Good Night Yoga, and Deborah Underwood’s The Quiet Book.

Praise For…

“Polizzi’s airy watercolors nicely harmonize with the interactive aspect of the text, giving the book potential as either a resource for anxious readers or as a choice for group readalouds.”
