From Library Journal:

Greenland, co-founder with her husband of InnerKids (affiliated with the Mindful Awareness Research Center at UCLA), here offers a commendable title on teaching mindful awareness techniques to children of all ages. The term "mindful awareness" is not completely mainstream, but the presentation and activities are comparable to the goals of meditation and yoga for reducing stress and building awareness of our feelings and reactions. These self-awareness techniques are designed to aid attention skills, increase self-soothing skills, and reveal interconnections that in turn will hone ethics and socially productive behavior, teaching children that "the key to managing stress...does not always lie in the situation itself but rather in how kids and their parents respond to it." Greenland excels in teaching these concepts to children of all ages, providing activities and metaphors that both nicely illustrate the goals and make them accessible and fun. It is easy to see this being used for children with attention problems or those suffering illness.-Julianne J. Smith, "Parenting Short Takes," BookSmack! 7/15/2010 (c) Copyright 2010.
