“Kudos to the children in Mr. Musumeci's fifth grade class for writing this book for their peers. It is obvious from both the pictures and the text that mindfulness has been an important part of their learning to navigate through difficult times by befriending their own minds and recognizing new ways to deal with the hard stuff differently. What a useful classroom strategy to catalyze real Learning by Learning first how to deal with intrusive thoughts and emotions and with outer circumstances at home and at school more creatively and wholesomely. Bravo to these real heroes – never mind the super.”
