Catching Thoughts

Bonnie Clark

Have you ever had an unwelcome thought that you just couldn't lose, no matter how hard you tried to push it away? Most of us would say yes—and many of our kids would too. For every child who has been weighed down by sadness or anxiety, Catching Thoughts teaches kids how to acknowledge unwanted thoughts, show them compassion, then actively let them go. Through this delightful story, children learn how to practice mindfulness, focusing on thoughts that bring beauty, joy, and calm into their lives.

The boy tries to cope by stuffing down his feelings, but with a little help and artistic inspiration, the boy realizes his feelings are something to be celebrated.
