Mindfulness is a big word for a simple idea - it is paying attention, with care, to one moment at a time. The perfect introduction to mindfulness, this book teaches children how to be mindful by focusing their thoughts and noticing the world around them using fun activities. Packed with a variety of crafts and exercises, kids can learn practical mindfulness in minutes. Help to settle your emotions by making a glitter jar, take time to appreciate food using mindful eating, and find out how to take a rainbow breath. With six chapters, including Focus and Calm, kids can pick activities to suit their needs. The breathing exercises can be done almost anywhere, and crafts such as bubbles of kindness use household items to create exciting tools for mindfulness. Parent's notes give advice on how to encourage children to get the most from the mindful activities and when they might be useful, and reference pages explain why sleep is important and how our bodies affect our emotions.

When Candice fell pregnant and stepped into the motherhood playing field, she found her experience bore little resemblance to the glossy magazine photos of women in horizontal stripe tops and the pinned discussions on mumsnet about what pushchair to buy. Leafing through the piles of prenatal paraphernalia, she found herself wondering: "Where are all the black mothers?". Candice started blogging about motherhood in 2016 after making the simple but powerful observation that the way motherhood is portrayed in the British media is wholly unrepresentative of our society at large. The result is this thought-provoking, urgent and inspirational guide to life as a black mother. It explores the various stages in between pregnancy and waving your child off at the gates of primary school, while facing hurdles such as white privilege, racial micro-aggression and unconscious bias at every point. Candice does so with her trademark sense of humour and refreshing straight-talking, and the result is a call-to-arms that will allow mums like her to take control, scrapping the parenting rulebook to mother their own way.
