KidLit Pick of the Week: Mindful Mantras series by Laurie Wright

Posted: Nov 19, 2020 4:12 PM

This week’s News15 KidLit Pick of the Week is the Mindful Mantras series by Laurie Wright.

This is an eight-book series designed to help adults show children how to cure low self-esteem, low self-worth, and negative self-talk. Each book is a quick, simple, easy read that will give you the words to start conversations about these important topics.

For example, I Belong helps kids who feel uncertain about themselves and worry about whether they fit in. This book gives examples of different dynamics to show how a variety of family units or groups fit together, although they may be diverse. The text has a rhythm that will keep children engaged and will help them remember techniques and mantras.

After reading this book your young child will realize that people are more alike than different and that everyone belongs, no matter where they are or what differences they might have.

I Can Handle It equips children with a necessary skill to alleviate everyday anxieties that arise in their lives. With repetitive text, readers will remember these tips and tools.

Positive self-talk is so important for improving and maintaining mental health, especially in an unsettled world. The Mindful Mantras books are a great tool for parents, teachers, and librarians to teach kids coping skills. The mantras will become part of their internal dialogue for readers.

· Appropriate for ALL kids, especially those who struggle with anxiety.

· Author’s website has great teacher resources, author resources, apparel, activity books, and so much more. www.lauriewrightauthor.com
