I’m excited to announce that I’m giving away a free copy of U is for Understanding: Claire’s Journey Toward Mindfulness by Jana York! U is for Understanding tells the story of Claire, an energetic second grader with a short attention span. Her teacher, Ms. Sage, introduces Claire’s class to the world of mindfulness one week at a time. Along the way, Claire encounters adverse experiences that any real-world second grader might find familiar: bullies, friends struggling with family issues, personal loss, and more. Through mindfulness, Claire develops self-regulation skills, resilience, and confidence.

Teachers will find Jana’s book to be a great introduction to mindfulness in the classroom. She uses vowels to highlight the key foundations of mindfulness in a way that’s easy for students to remember:
Her book also comes with an offer of 30 free companion activities and interactive worksheets. These activities support the five Vowels of Mindfulness, and readers will notice some of them in action in U is for Understanding.
