Book Review: What Does It Mean to be Be Present?

Author: Rana DiOrio
Illustrator: Eliza Wheeler

From the Book Jacket: Being present means...Noticing when someone needs help.
Waiting patiently for your turn. Focusing on what's happening now. Follow a group of friends at school, at home, and at the beach as they experience just what it means to be present.
Why It's On My Bookshelf: This has been a great book to teach attention, focus, and mindfulness. I've been using it in the younger grades to help kids learn how to calm their minds and practice stillness. I was also surprised how it great it worked on helping kids have better listening skills. Often we don't even listen when someone is speaking and are just ready to jump in with our own thoughts. This can cause a lot of problems when kids be communicate. Glad I finally purchased this book!
