Visit from author Catarina Peterson – May 2019

Visit from an author

 Year 1 and Year 2 received a visit from author, Catarina Peterson, on Monday afternoon. She is the author of Golden Sparkles: an introduction to mindfulness. Golden Sparkles offers children aged 5 to 10 an inspiring introduction to key concepts of mindfulness through the adventures of Dahlia, Victor and Bluu as they grow in mindfulness, learning to listen to what their bodies are telling them throughout each moment of the day. The book is beautifully illustrated and explores significant mindfulness topics for children, such as breathing, being present and addressing emotions. The children enjoyed being read the book and then taking part in some mindfulness activities. If you’d like to buy a copy to read at home with your child, you can find the book here –
