Mindful Monkey

In this 2011, illustrated book, children explore the meaning of mindfulness and achieving “true happiness” by bringing all of your attention to whatever you’re doing at that moment.

Summary: Monkey asks Panda what he does to seem so happy and peaceful all the time, and Panda replies that he brings his attention to whatever he is doing at a given time, whether it is eating, walking, or resting.
