Description

Henry is a lot of fun when he's not storming through the house, so Emma decides to teach him how to be still. By showing him how to sit, bow, and breathe, Emma is able to calm the hurricane within Henry.

  • A perfect introduction to meditation for young readers, presented in a captivating story.
  • The illustrations bring the story to life with delightful whimsy.
  • Includes a back-of-book presentation of simple mindfulness techniques that can be shared at home and in the classroom.
  • In Planting Seeds, Thich Nhat Hanh, a Vietnamese Buddhist monk, teaches that by sitting still and meditating, the mind can become clear. Like Hanh's apple juice story, when a glass of lemonade is stirred, the pulp swirls around. When it sits quietly, the pulp settles and the liquid becomes clear. In this way, a glass of lemonade is a metaphor for how meditation and mindfulness work. That is why this book is called The Lemonade Hurricane. Practicing mindfulness and meditation helps us tame the hurricane within.

Reviews

“A child-friendly introduction to the practice of meditation and the benefits of mindfulness.” — Kirkus

“Every now and again a children's book comes along that efficiently sheds light on the practices of meditation and mindfulness in a way that makes it all more accessible, both for kids and adults. Lemonade Hurricane is the nickname of one of the two siblings whom we'll meet in this lovely book; one meditates, one will learn the value of meditation during the story. Super sweet, this short, understandable look at how we can all approach our sittings with clarity and simplicity is a perfect gift for kids everywhere. And any kids book that inspires me to sit myself down upon reading is priceless...” — Elena Brower, Teach.yoga
