Each page reminds them to breathe and stretch to be something in nature...birds, trees, moon...I don't think they've ever thought about breathing much. The feeling inthe room changes. Concentrating very hard, don't fall over!
By the end they are tired from using muscles they don't use much, we talk about how strong the muscles will get as we practice. Then we lay flat and relax and breathe with our eyes closed. We get a little taste of meditation. At first this lasts only a minute, but we will gradually lay longer. Stillness for preschoolers. Priceless.
