Wellbeing Book List

Picture Books & Resources

I believe that the very purpose of life is to be happy. From the very core of our being, we desire contentment. In my own limited experience I have found that the more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being.

Dalai Lama

Stress affects many children, just as it does adults. An increasing number of parents and teachers are introducing mindfulness to children. Only five to ten minutes of mindful practice reduces stress and anxiety in children and adults. It develops increased concentration, improved sleep, social skills and positive decision making. These books focus on health and wellbeing and encourage a positive mindset.
