What People are Saying....
"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..."
