From the bestselling author of Bubble Gum Brain and My Mouth is a Volcano!, comes a hilarious story about learning to be present wherever we are….and what can happen when we’re not.
These are my feet and this is me. Sometimes I’m not where I’m supposed to be.
My brain gets crowded. There’s so much going on. I do three things at once, and get two of them wrong!
“Be where your feet are,” I hear people say.“ Do one thing at a time. It’s a much better way.”
Each day, there are many so things to think about. Getting ready for school, turning in homework, taking a math test, band solo tryouts, soccer practice…and it’s a long way from your head to your feet.
Be Where Your Feet Are! reinforces the concepts of mindfulness and being present in a way children will remember, while showing how good life can be when we learn to appreciate the world — and people — around us.
