Now out: The Monkey Mind Meditation Deck 30 Fun Ways for Kids to Chill Out, Tune In, and Open Up by Carolyn Kanjuro

Do you know what the monkey mind is? Does your child? As I understand it, this is a concept that addresses our being all over the place, unable to focus on the moment or to live one’s best and most peaceful life. We all can use some assistance in learning to quiet ourselves and to be more present. This deck hopes to help children, and maybe their adults, to do this by sharing some of the “playful and powerful qualities of animals and elements in nature as inspiration to discover these qualities in ourselves.” In a note to adults, the author states that the exercises are meant to provide a “safe way to reflect on difficult topics and a form of…support.” The author engages children by offering them multiple ways to use the cheerily illustrated deck.

I recommend these cards as one tool for helping children to think, feel and be as comfortable as possible in their lives. Adults may well enjoy this deck too!

Many thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for this title in exchange for an honest review.

2. How can you offer a flash of your light? Draw a picture or write a card to cheer someone up? Give a smile or a hug? Pick up a tiny bug and place it outside in a safe spot where it won’t get squished?

3. Your firefly lamp is always with you. It might be exhausting to try to light up the whole world, but
