From an early age, we experience emotional distress when unexpected things happen that we don't always know how to deal with. As we grow up, we learn about various ways to deal with our emotions. Quite often we learn that many situations in life resolve themselves. All we need to do is be patient and accept things. The earlier we can learn this lesson, the more we can approach life with peace and happiness. While trying to help my five-year old granddaughter with her emotional ups and downs, I was inspired to write this story. After reading it to her, to my surprise, she understood the message and was able to relax. I was glad to see that my focus on spirituality, years of practicing meditation and affinity with nature had a practical benefit. Thinking that this story could help other parents and children, I bring you "Take a Deep Breath, Sky!" It is a wonderful story for children to understand the immense value in patience and acceptance. Using nature as the backdrop, it beautifully teaches how children can use their breath, relaxation, and a little bit of patience to overcome anger, frustration, and fear, gaining much-needed tools that will last a lifetime. I hope that the beautiful illustrations in the book will engage your children in the story and they will learn from Mr. Mountain's wisdom!
