I Take A Deeep Breath!

Summary:

Preschoolers listen along and learn that simply by taking a deep breath they can regain their composure no matter what kind of event they must confront: happy, sad, big, small, surprising, new, scary.


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

The repetition of the activity, particularly when paired with events from a world as a young child sees it, makes this a most useful book.

Content Awareness Factors:

None.


Little Kid Reaction

Our preschooler liked this book. She liked stopping on each page to take a big breath. She sees it as a copy of what we do with her occupational therapist.

Parent Reaction

Although geared for children, this is a nice reminder for parents to slow down, too. The repetition of the activity, combined with the multiple opportunities to practice taking a deep breath, make for a calmer child by the end of the book.

This is a book designed to help children understand their own power in facing what they perceive as challenges.
Educational Themes:

Draw on the vignettes to help your young child understand the power within.
