Mind Hug: The first story
About the story
Jack is feeling fizzy. He is chasing every thought! Soon he is tired, grumpy and feeling flat. Time for a HUG. But it’s not a normal squeeze Jack needs – it’s a Mind Hug – and it starts with one big breath....
When Sarah has some mixed-up feelings, Jack tells her about the Mind Hug to see if it might help. Sarah tries her own Mind Hug and has an idea to make it even better.
This picture book introduces younger children to universal mindfulness in a gentle and open way. The power of taking deep breaths is revealed through story art that changes with a child’s thoughts and emotions.
