|From The Publisher*||You can squat like a frog or lounge like a cat--but if you want to sit like a buddha, there are seven key steps for taking your seat.|
Sit with Me invites kids of all ages to learn meditation through playful rhymes and adorable illustrations. Justa Bug describes the seven-point meditation posture--from the top of the head to the bottom of the feet--in an easy and accessible way. With a spine straight like coins stacked on a plate and shoulders back like a vulture in flight, kids will learn the basics of sitting through encouraging verse. With a little practice, Sit with Me will help everyone in the family learn how to meditate easy and free.
