Originally published: 2018
It's Saturday morning and Jada and her brother Michael are watching TV. It's a beautiful day and Dad wants to get them outside so he invents 'The Garden Game'. Whoever notices the most interesting things is the winner. At first, they can't see anything. Just grass and flowers. But by looking slowly, more closely, and using all of their senses, they soon begin to notice lots of fascinating things. Small things they would not have noticed before seem so much bigger and interesting. And finally, their sense of smell leads them to the prize! The story shows how they use mindfulness - the ability to pay attention to the present moment with curiosity - to help them pay attention in everyday life. Mindfulness practices (exercises) are integrated into each story, and expanded on in the 'Notes to Parents and Teachers' section at the end of the books.

Note: Originally published: 2018 Outside it is hot and sunny, but Sally's internal weather is different. Her gran is very sick and in the hospital. She notices that she is experiencing an emotion - sadness. Sadness, like other emotions, comes and goes. It is normal and natural, even though it might not feel pleasant. For Sally, sadness feels like a dark, cloudy day inside his body. Abu's internal weather is a little different. He also feels sad but there is a worry inside too. Worry feels like a wind that blows around in his belly making him feel scared.
