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.
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.
