Simply be like a dog with this irresistible picture book by beloved author Maria Gianferrari and illustrated by #1 New York Times bestselling artist Pete Oswald that introduces readers to mindfulness.
Join a young child and their dog as they experience every minute of the day to its fullest—from the second they wake up to the moment they fall asleep. Readers will love barking, wagging, and sniffing along with the gentle cues in the book.
Interactive backmatter includes prompts for a mindfulness walk that engages all five senses as well as a guided breathing exercise.
Maria Gianferrari and her rescue dog, Maple, play race-and-chase in Massachusetts, rain or shine. She’s the author of Being a Dog: A Tail of Mindfulness and these other pawsome dog “tails”: the Penny & Jelly books, Hello Goodbye Dog, Operation Rescue Dog, and To Dogs with Love. Can you tell that Maria loves dogs? Writing Being a Dog helped Maria feel joy again after losing her rescue dog, Becca. You can learn more about Maria at her website, mariagianferrari.com
