The Tail of Max the Mindless Dog, A Children's Book on Mindfulness (Written by Florenza Denise Lee; Illustrated by Michelle Wynn)
Parents, caregivers, educators, are you looking for a book that will empower your child with tools needed to replace his/her negative, less productive habits with more powerful positive ones? If so, this is the book for you. The Tail of Max the Mindless Dog, A Children's Book on Mindfulness incorporates the Belly Breath, Count of Ten, and Words of Affirmation to empower children to move past negative habits and embrace a life of Mindfulness. What makes this book so unique is that 100% of it was written based on a dream the writer Florenza had on February 1, 2014.
Max's tail gets injured. So much so, he believes his tail is the source of his pain. He sets out to catch it and tie it in a knot so it will never hurt again. In doing so, he develops a habit of running around in circles. His friends give him the nickname of the Mindless Dog because he has only one thing on his mind: catching his tail. It is only when Max is introduced to Mindfulness (belly breath, count of ten, and words of affirmation) that he is able to replace his negative habit of running in circles with more positive productive habits. Upon seeing Max is no longer frantically running around in circles, his friends invite him over to play baseball and an amazing thing happens! You and your child will absolutely adore this book. Max is currently enjoyed by young readers in over 48 US States and 30 countries.
