Great review once again, gali! You just keep rolling them out! This type of book is not really my cup of tea, but your descriptions were very thorough and well thought out. Great job!

A meditational book for children genuinely seems like a beneficial concept although reading has always been considered soothing and relaxing. I appreciate the author's effort for helping children feel relaxed and less stressed as these days each one go through the competitive atmosphere. Everybody needs stress busters and the positive review shows that the book is doing a good deed indeed. :D :congratualtions-smiley:
