Lolli and the Bunyip : Meditation Adventures for Kids, book 5 is a children's adventure book written by Elena Paige. In each of Paige's Meditation Adventures books, Lolli takes children to her World, a place filled with far-away lands, fun animals and endless adventures. Each of the three stories in this book is a guided meditation and relaxation session. Children can read the stories along with their caregiver and look at the pictures before doing the meditation, or they can be encouraged to sit back, relax and visualize the stories. In Lolli and the Bunyip, Lolli takes her friends to Australia, to Uluru, in the Northern Territory. Uluru is also known as Ayers Rock, and it's large and red, like most of the surrounding countryside. Liquorice, the toucan, is already there, guarding the wallabies who are asleep. Lolli and her friends are going to join him in guarding them, which may seem a bit boring for an adventure, but marvelous ideas often come up when you're bored. Sometimes, it's okay to just accept that you're bored and see what happens next. In Lolli and the Lonely Star, Lolli takes her friends into outer space, wearing magical space suits and star goggles. Out there, they meet a lonely star who feels different and sad. This star likes to giggle and play, but none of the other stars wants to play with it. Lolli, her friends, and their new star friend travel through a black hole to find a galaxy where other stars like to giggle and play. In Lolli and the Treasure Map, the adventurers return to Lolli's Land of Color and try to help Bluebeard regain his stolen treasure. They follow a magical map and explore Grubbity Forest on their way.
Elena Paige's children's metaphysical adventure book, Lolli and the Bunyip : Meditation Adventures for Kids, book 5, continues with this ground-breaking series that shows how infinitely adaptable meditation sessions can be, even for hyperactive, squirmy kids. I always seem to get a bit excited as I start following Lolli's breathing instructions, ring the bell three times and call her name. I've been a practitioner of meditation for many years, but have never seen the practice expanded in such exciting and adventurous ways. Each of Paige's meditations are free-flowing relaxation activities that also address social issues children may be wrestling with, such as feeling different, lonely or bored. In the meditations, children imagine themselves dressing in shorts and t-shirts for the desert or in spacesuits for a jaunt into outer space. Paige creates vivid, colourful guided meditations that will have many adults taking a second look at their same-old meditation practices and experimenting themselves a bit with Lolli's Land of Color and far-off adventures -- I know, I have. Lolli and the Bunyip : Meditation Adventures for Kids, book 5 will have kids feeling relaxed and quite pleased with life in general after they meditate with Lolli. This innovative book is most highly recommended.
