Faster than a speeding spitball, more powerful than a playground bully, able to breeze through homework and finish nightly chores in a single bound, it's Master of Mindfulness -here to conquer stress, worry, and any trouble that comes your way!

Do you ever feel angry, disappointed, or stressed out about family problems, school, bullies, or trouble with friends? If so, mindfulness can help. Master of Mindfulness is a unique and empowering book written for kids by kids, with cool illustrations and tips that show you how to be confident, get focused, stay calm, and tap into your own inner strength so you can be your own superhero-no matter what life throws your way!

Childhood is supposed to be a happy, carefree time, but the truth is that all kids have stress-especially when dealing with difficulties at school, at home, or with friends. Sometimes things happen in life that are hard, and you can't stop thinking about them, or you react too fast. You might be mad, sad, irritated, embarrassed, anxious, jealous, or even disappointed with yourself when things don't go the way you would've hoped. And when you're really upset, it's hard to make good decisions-you may end up doing something you later regret, or that gets you into trouble. You could probably use some help-and fast!-but where can you turn? This book will give you the skills you need to discover your own superpowers by showing you how mindfulness-like stopping to take a few deep, mindful breaths-can help you calm down and deal with things differently.

Written by Laurie Grossman, cofounder of Mindful Schools, and Mr. Musumeci's fifth grade class at Reach Academy in Oakland, CA, Master of Mindfulness presents mindful activities proven to make it easier to pay attention, accept yourself and others, manage your anger, and even get to sleep at night. The book features cool, mixed media illustrations with real kids' photos and stories about how mindfulness can help in different stressful situations. It even covers some of the brain science behind why mindfulness helps people to feel better, stay in the present moment, be kind, and make good decisions. The book includes easy and fun practices like mindful breathing, noticing your feelings, paying attention to your body, and mindful eating, as well as links to engaging audio recordings produced by Mr. Musumeci's students. And once you become a master of mindfulness, you can help others by sharing your superpower and teaching them how to do it, too.

When things go wrong, or when you have scary thoughts or strong feelings, you may need help to sort it all out-no matter how old you are. Learning and practicing mindfulness can make it easier to deal with the issues you face every day by showing you how to tap into your own inner strength in times of stress. So, why not use mindfulness and start being your own superhero today?

About the Authors:

Laurie Grossman is an expert in mindfulness in education, and has been an activist since 1975-she believes mindfulness is the tool most likely to help achieve social justice. In 2007, she launched a pilot program of mindfulness in an Oakland, CA, elementary school that was covered in The New York Times and on NBC. Grossman is cofounder of Mindful Schools, now one of the largest mindfulness-in-education programs in the world. She currently works with Inner Explorer, an organization focused on bringing mindfulness programs into schools to improve educational outcomes and the well-being of children and teachers in K-12 classrooms throughout the world.

Mr. Musumeci has been a teacher at Reach Academy in Oakland, CA, since 2009. His class is comprised of twenty-nine wonderful, lively, and smart fifth graders who love mindfulness. Reach Academy is a transitional K-5 school where the vast majority of students are on free and reduced lunch programs, and 99 percent are children of color. Mr. Musumeci's 5th Grade Class class is excited to publish a book of their own about mindfulness for other kids because they have benefitted so much from the practice.

Designer Angelina Alvarez holds a degree in photography from the San Francisco Art Institute. She works with Mindful Life Project in Richmond, CA, a nonprofit organization that teaches mindfulness, yoga, therapeutic art, and hip-hop/performing arts to elementary school students in underserved communities.
