Meditation for Children: A Book Of Mindfullness by Shelley Wilson – Book Review



Author and meditation tutor Shelley Wilson takes you on a magical journey to a calm and happy place that you and your child will love.

Children of all ages can learn and enjoy the benefits of meditation.

Designed to help access creative abilities through relaxation and imagination, these stories help develop the necessary tools needed at a young age for lifelong healthy habits of managing stress and anxiety while also improving learning skills.

Meditation for Children is a simple way to introduce children to mindfulness through guided visualization. Includes a handy reference guide and instructions.


This is an absolutely charming book, with lovely illustrations by Phaedra Elson.

The beginning has some gentle pointers and a how to guide for parents….

  1. Stories – for anytime, day or night, but perfect for a bedtime routine too
  2. Drawing exercises for children to interpret the story in their own way
  3. Simple breathing exercises 

The stories themselves are all between 2.5 and 3.5 minutes long, and are gentle and magical to encourage the imagination. For bedtime, it’s the. Goodnight, sleep tight or daytime a drawing of the adventure…..

I’m sure this will be calming for both the parent and the child and as I have a granddaughter due in December and this will be one of her first books. 

Thank you to Anne Cater and Random Things Tours for the opportunity to participate in this blog tour and for the promotional materials and a free copy of the ebook. This is my honest, unbiased review.

Shelley Wilson is an English author of motivational self-help titles and young adult fantasy fiction. 

Her sensible side writes non-fiction books to inspire you to be the best you can be, and her cheeky and playful side writes young adult fiction to remind you to nurture that inner teen.

Shelley is a single mum of three, has a crazy black cat called Luna and is obsessed with vampires, Tudor history, and exploring castles. 

She’s tall (5ft 10inches) which seems to surprise people when they meet her. She often hears, “you’re much taller than your profile picture!” (Courtesy of Goodreads)
