Sitting like a frog

This 2013 book introduces the basics of mindfulness to children and acts as a guide to cultivating a presence of mind, heart, and in the body. Children and their parents are encouraged to explore practices together to help buffer stress and foster life skills through experimentation. Included are meditation practices that aim to help children calm down, fall asleep more easily, alleviate worry, manage anger, and become more focused, patient and aware. There is also a companion audio CD with guided meditation exercises.
