Lolli and the Magical Kitchen: Meditation Adventures for Kids by Elena Paige is a delightful way to teach children how to find calmness through meditative techniques. In this book, Lolli and Liquorice talk directly to children, taking them on fun-filled adventures to the Land of Color. Children visit the Magical Kitchen, the Magical Garden and the Galapagos Islands. Each story begins with the same instructions to relax by closing their eyes, breathing and relaxing. Throughout each tale, more meditative instructions are given to enhance the calming experience. This book could be used by parents for bedtime reading, or it could become a conversation starter to help children cope with difficulties through meditative techniques. There are additional surprises in the stories. For example, in the Magical Kitchen story, children are taught good bedtime hygiene tips, with a few recipes for healthy evening snacks.
The stories in this book are engaging and rich in meaning. The front cover, with two children in a meditative pose, is a great representation of what lies within. The artwork throughout the book, by Blue Monkey Studio, will entice children to join in the fun adventures. By using rainbow colors in numerous ways, the author helps children experience the wonderful effects of bright colors. Elena Paige has crafted a whimsical and enchanting book for children in Lolli and the Magical Kitchen: Meditation Adventures for Kids. This book is the sixth in a series, and it seems each one is comprised of wonderful journeys for children.
