Peaceful Piggy Meditation

by Kerry Lee MacLean

     This is just the kind of  book I love to find and share at Peaceful Reader; one that focuses on how to make our world calm.  This book is simple with out being preachy or over-the-top.  It begins like this:
"Sometimes the world can be such a busy, noisy place.  Sometimes it feels like you always have to hurry, hurry, hurry..." 
We feel like that at our house many days and from blog hopping around so do many other families.  This book gives you clear reasons why we all could use a little daily meditation and how to fit it in with ease. 
"Peaceful piggies know when to take a break, find a spot and just breathe, breathe, breathe." 
 This is a great book to help at home and at school, as kids can do this at their desk, during testing, anytime they need to find that power within.  We do live in a stressful world-one with many worries for children-and having an activity they can count on to bring them back to a peaceful feeling has gotta be a fantastic teaching tool.

P.S. Kerry Lee does her own illustrations, which are charmingly cute, making her extraordinarily talented!
Browsing around her website I discovered three other titles:  Moody Cow Meditates, The Family Meditation Book and Peaceful Piggy Yoga-all available for purchase at her website. 

For more information:

Find it here at an IndieBound book store-Peaceful Piggy Meditation.
and while browsing I found this site, Luck Duck Children's Books, with an awesome list of alternative titles for kids-many of the books I love like The Peace Book by Todd Parr are on this list.

I got this book when it first came out and used it to help calm both of my kiddos when they seemed to be in non-peaceful piggy mode! Thanks for sharing it here.

This sounds like a great book to teach kids how to de-stress.
