Back of Book: Follow a little girl as she takes you on a tour through all of her favorite things, from the holes she digs to the hugs she gives in Now, a clever and poignant picture book
I have seen a trend in picture books this year that teach kids mindfulness. Now by Antoinette Portis is a beautiful story that teaches children to focus on the present. Each page shows readers a different action that the little girl is enjoying. In a world where instant gratification is consistent, it is important to teach children to slow down and enjoy the small things in life. The illustrations are a beautiful addition to the story. The little girl shows readers why each thing is important to her. This is a perfect addition to any growth mindset unit in education.
