Meet Zara, a clever, responsible, and sometimes anxious seven-year-old girl who lives with her mother (Mama) and four-year-old little brother (Sam). Like a lot of kids her age, Zara sometimes struggles with managing her emotions when confronted with stressful situations.
In Zara's Big Messy Day (That Turned Out Okay), a hardcover picture book for young readers, children will join her for an ordinary day where she faces three obstacles. Guided by Zara's mother, both Zara and the reader will learn a simple breathing technique-a short visualization meditation-that will help them find peace and calm in any moment.
