Come on a meditation adventure with Lolli in Lolli & The Lollipop: Meditation Adventures For Kids by Elena Paige. Are you feeling sad, misunderstood, or angry? Did you have a bad day? Lolli understands. She doesn't want you to feel bad, so she has invited you to visit her home. She is certain that she can help you feel better. Take Lolli's hand and travel to the amazing Land of Color. Don't worry, you won't get lost in the Land of Color, but you will see some spectacular sights and meet some interesting characters. In the Land of Color, you may even learn a few things. Do you need cheering up? Did you know that some birds may even wear polka-dotted undies? Well, they do in the Land of Silly! Lolli will gladly take you there if you want to go. She is sure that you will feel so much better when you get back home. You never know what you will do when you take an adventure with Lolli, only that you will come home smiling.
Children have bad days too. Lolli & The Lollipop by Elena Paige is a cute meditation book for children. The reader is given step-by-step instructions on how to breathe, relax, and send love before going into each meditation. As the child is transported through various "meditation adventures," they are gently instructed to release old habits and beliefs that no longer serve them, and are reminded that they are fun and creative, and so much more. The meditations are written in such a way that the child will be able to cultivate these important habits and values without triggering ego and causing over-thinking. The adventures are fun and help to calm the child while guiding the use of their active imaginations.
Since it is clear that the author knows how to meditate properly, I would highly recommend this book to parents that are serious about teaching their young children to meditate. I would suggest this book to parents and children ages 4-7. I found my horrible week just melted away after reading the first few paragraphs, so I am confident it could be helpful to an overly stressed parent of young children as it can be used as a nightly meditation or a calming book for storytime.
