Frank J. Sileo

Illustrated by Jennifer Zivoin

Feb 2017 32pp, colour illustrations

Sometimes we just need to take a pause — to stop,

breathe, and take a moment for ourselves. To be

mindful. Told in rhyming verse and beautifully

illustrated,

A World of Pausabilities

is an inviting

introduction to mindfulness. Following a neighborhood

on a summer day, readers will learn how to apply

mindfulness to simple, everyday moments, and how

days are filled with endless possibilities to take a pause.

Includes a Note to Parents and Caregivers that further

discusses mindfulness and ways to introduce pauses into

your child’s life. Age Range: 4-8.

AN INVITATION TO SELF-CARE

Why Learning to Nurture Yourself Is the Key

to the Life You’ve Always Wanted, 7 Principles

for Abundant Living

Tracey Cleantis

Apr 2017 200pp

9781616496791 Paperback £13.95 / €16.00

A day of indulgence at a spa - or at home on the couch

- might help us unwind and feel temporarily renewed,

but is that all there is to self-care? Tracey Cleantis

changes the dialogue about taking care of ourselves and

demonstrates why real self-care is more than just routine

self-indulgence.
