My Magic Breath: Finding Calm Through Mindful Breathing (HARPER Hardcover, on sale May 15, 2018) by mindfulness guru Nick Ortner (New York Times-bestselling author of The Tapping Solution) with vibrant watercolor illustrations by Michelle Polizzi, continues his work to help others live happy, healthy, stress-free lives. Yes, even our littles can be stressed at the end of the day.
A wonderful read for the chaotic preschool classroom or after a busy day before bed, MY MAGIC BREATH helps children process their emotions and consciously breathe through the moment to help find calm. With a read-along-breathe-along element, this new release provides prompts to inspire conversation between parent and child about how they feel:

- What happened today that made you smile?
- Did something happen that made you feel sad or mad?
