Kid’s Book Review: Master Owl Meets Miss Bunny

Kid’s Book Review: Master Owl Meets Miss Bunny

About the Book and Author

This is the first of a series of ‘Master Owl’ books, written by Rob Holmes and illustrated by Beidi Duo, designed to introduce children to the concept and benefits of Mindfulness.

Master Owl helps all sorts of animals to overcome the big issues in life. Miss Bunny is sad initially because she feels ‘lost and small among the trees so big and tall’.

However, Master Owl’s mindfulness and wisdom helps her to look at life in a very different way and see how all things are connected together.

Rob Holmes had a vision for Master Owl after having an unexpected spiritual awakening in 2011.
It was the 20 seconds that changed his life.
As a result of his awakening, he sold his successful baby sleeping products company ‘The Gro Company’ in 2013, which he co-founded in 2000 with his wife and started writing. Apart from being a parent of four children and a writer of children’s books, Rob is also planning to open a retreat centre in the coming years on land in Devon, UK.  You can find out more by visiting his website.

Book Review

The story helped me to understand what being mindful means

Yusuf: This book was good because it taught me about being mindful. The story helped me to understand what being mindful means. There was also some useful information about animals and nature. The pictures were really good and I liked the nice and shiny look. The story is rhyming which was easy for me to read.

Mums thoughts: This story provides a simple explanation of mindfulness which is a great introduction for young children who have not come across the topic before. In addition to the story there is a lovely explanatory page at the end which guides the child through a practical method of being mindful.

This story is very comprehensive not only covering mindfulness but including much information about nature and sparked many questions from my young ones.
