This time on The Children’s Hour, we learn strategies to keep our cool with Michelle Renee Pelletier, who teaches kids how to meditate using guided imagery.  We’ll try Michelle’s meditation exercise, and reflect on how it makes us feel.

Then we’ll meet Evan, a 10 year old who was taught mindfulness at school with Families 4 Peace’s instructor, Scott Cameron. In this excerpt from Peace Talks Radio, we hear how, when and why Evan uses mindfulness at school, and instructor Scott explains how the benefits of mindfulness extend beyond the classroom.

Our Kids Crew member Evan Daitz reviews the book, The Boy, The Mole, The Fox, and The Horse by Charlie Mackesy.

All of this is mixed with excellent music!
