Hornet & Hippo Count the Stars:
Mindfulness Based Stories and Activities to Calm Anxiety and Balance the Mind
“Let me introduce you to my two friends, Hornet and Hippo. Hornet is always on the go, buzzing around his hive and worrying more than he needs. Hippo loves her river, watching birds, and slowing down for hours. An unlikely pair, they share many adventures while building a friendship that brings connection and balance to their lives.”
Hornet and Hippo Count the Stars is a collection of six stories geared for children 4–10 with mindfulness concepts woven in. These concepts are explored further through parent and teacher prompts, which provide guidance on ways to build concepts of acceptance, the negativity bias, child mindset, patience verses reactivity, letting go, and breathing skills into a child’s everyday life. With a beautifully detailed map of their home, Hornet and Hippo blend the sweetness of Frog and Toad storytelling with science to help children get in touch with their emotions and their amazing brains. Perfect for families, schools, and yoga classes for children.
