It's a beautiful day, but Jada and her brother Michael are staying indoors - until Dad invents a game to get them exploring nature: whoever notices the most interesting things is the winner. At first, they just see grass and flowers. But by slowing down, looking closely, and using all of their senses, they soon begin to notice lots more about the natural world. Through practicing mindfulness this way, Jada and Michael find that small things they might not have noticed before seem so much more interesting.

Everyday Mindfulness Series
The Everyday Mindfulness series explores how a mindful attitude to life can enhance enjoyment, promote a sense of calm and confidence, and provide young people with skills they can use every day. Mindfulness can help us improve concentration, deal with difficult emotions, sleep better, and even boost our immune systems. Mindfulness practices and exercises are integrated into each story and expanded on in the section for adults at the end of each book. Readers are also invited to "press the pause button" at various points in each story to mindfully reflect on their own present-moment experiences. Also available is a free downloadable leader's guide for the series with additional information, discussion questions, and activities.
