Slow Down And Be Here Now - Laura Brand


More Nature Stories to Make You Stop, Look and Be Amazed by the Tiniest Things

Zoom in to watch a hummingbird drink nectar; watch a pea shoot appear; see a little snail as he comes come out to drink. With charming text and real science, see nature up close and let it stop you in your tracks, so that you can truly find joy in the present moment. 

This lovely anthology encourages kids and families to slow down and read 50 real-life nature stories that command calm and foster mindfulness. 

All around us, nature is turning, growing and working. Every day, hour by hour, magical transformations happen right in front of you. But it's not always easy to see them. You'll find 50 nature stories in this beautifully illustrated book, paused just long enough for you to watch them unfold. Moments include: a tadpole turning into a frog, a duck teaching her ducklings how to swim, the moon waxing and waning, and dew collecting on a leaf. Then go outside and explore and see what you find when you take the time to slow down.
