Lolli and the Meditating Snail is a collection of guided meditations for children written by Elena Paige. These meditations can be read to children at bedtime or before a nap, or they can be shared as stories. Lolli always has something exciting planned whenever children ring her bell three times and call out her name. In this fourth collection of guided meditations, Lolli takes her friends to the Land of Purple where they get to meet Fred, a meditating snail, who was once a normal-sized snail but is now gigantic and purple. His growth and the purplish tinge that covers his world are due to his powerful meditation processes. And Fred will share his tricks for mind power with his guests, but only if they let him give them a very snail-slimy kiss. In Lolli and The Food Fight, Lolli shows her guests what she does with all the delicious food she makes in the Cooking Castle. Food fights are fun!
Elena Paige's collection of guided meditations for kids, Lolli and the Meditating Snail, is filled with inspirational, educational and magical moments for kids and their parents or caregivers as their intrepid host, Lolli, takes them on three new adventures. The illustrations in this fourth book are lushly and brilliantly colored and fit the narrative perfectly. Again, Paige offers uncolored versions of her illustrations for kids to color in themselves. She includes body relaxation exercises in this set of adventures, as well as offering ways to overcome fear, shyness and insecurity. Paige's stories are marvelous and add a whole new allure to the process of meditation. I particularly enjoyed the Traveling Circus and the variety of animals and mythological creatures one encounters on this meditation. While I'm always eager and excited to see where Lolli is going to take us next, I'm finding that each of her adventures is well worth numerous repeated visits. Lolli and the Meditating Snail is most highly recommended.
