Tomorrow Is Near But Today Is Here is a wonderful story with subtle advice hidden in the lines. Author Asaf Rozanes uses rhyming verse to point out all the things Mia is missing by worrying too much. Her dad tries to provide alternatives for her to think about rather than worry. He suggests focusing on today, rather than worry about what might—or might not—happen. Read, draw, play are some suggestions that he provides to keep her mind off things that have not happened. Readers can follow Mia to the park, school trips, and bedtime stories. Full-color illustrations dominate the pages. The artwork is well drawn and draws young readers into this book.
Tomorrow Is Near But Today Is Here: Anxiety, ADHD and Anger Managed through Mindfulness is a children’s picture book that may help children who experience anxiety or worry often. Written and illustrated by Asaf Rozanes, this book provides lots of advice for children who may be hesitant or anxious. This book would be a wonderful addition to school and public libraries, as well as homes. There are several pages of activities at the back of the book. At the end of the story, you discover that there is a hidden heart in some of the illustrations. Children love to go back and look at the pictures for the subtle heart shape—it’s a way to get children to look at the book again. The coloring pages are a wonderful idea, especially for teachers or parents who may want to share the story and activities with their students.
