Meditation Station Susan B. Katz

Winner of the 2020 International Children’s Mind/Body/Spirit Book Award!

Your racing train of thoughts may try to take you down the railroad tracks, but you can stay in the Meditation Station, where children ages 4-8 learn how to calm their bodies and minds.

All aboard for Meditation Station! It’s time to learn how to manage our busy minds, difficult feelings, and frustrations by staying with our breath and in our body.

Your train of thoughts might be racing, but you can manage it with some simple steps. Take a deep breath in, and then let the breath out slowly. That is how you will learn what meditation is all about. The next train is coming. Can you hear it chugging along? Stay in the meditation station–don’t hop on the train!

Just wave goodbye to your racing mind and find inner calm.

This is what Arianna and other global influencers are saying about the book:

“Meditation Station is a must-read for children all over the world! Parents and teachers can introduce the concept of taking even just a little bit of time to focus on our breathing and being fully present, instead of getting distracted and derailed by our thoughts. Cute characters and lyrical text show kids that pausing and recharging is possible even in our fast-paced, hyperconnected world.”

— Arianna Huffington, Founder & CEO, Thrive Global

“This delightful book offers children one of the most precious of gifts—an understanding that we are not our thoughts!  The evocative theme and beautiful illustrations remind all of us that we can stay balanced and calm instead of being taken for a ride by reactive stories in our mind.”

— Tara Brach, author of Radical Compassion

“As a father and someone who has practiced meditation for the past twenty-five years, I’m so grateful for and excited about this beautiful book.  Embracing mindfulness and teaching our children to meditate is so important for them and for our world.

— Mike Robbins, Internationally Renowned Speaker & Author of We’re All in This Together

“Meditation Station is an adorably brilliant book for teaching calming techniques and mindfulness to children! While reading and studying the charming illustrations, I began breathing more mindfully and felt a relaxed calmness wash over me. By the last page, I felt like I had meditated. With the clarity that comes from serene mindfulness, I predict Meditation Station will be a beloved staple in homes, libraries, children’s hospitals, schools, and meditation centers for years and years to come.”

— Laura Numeroff (NYT Bestselling Author of If You Give a Mouse a Cookie series)

“How wonderful to have such a delightful lesson for children of all ages on befriending one’s own mind.”
