Title: Baby Loves: Calm
Jennifer Eckford

Baby Calm Cover

The Story:
Calm is the first title in a new board book series (Baby Loves) that introduces pre-schoolers to some of modern-day themes. From Aware to Zen, Calm teaches mindfulness and meditation concepts with a different word for each letter of the alphabet.

Baby Calm 1

Favourite Spread:
Anna’s illustrations are perfect for babies who will love the big contrasts and simple images that perfectly illustrate Jennifer’s mindfulness concepts.

Baby Calm 2

With much of the world currently experiencing some form of lockdown, the words which particularly stood out for me were: G for grateful, I for inspiration and V for vivid (which has a picture of a rainbow). Right now, we all need to find the joy in the little things.

Baby Calm 3

The Verdict:
Now more than ever, mindfulness is something we all need in our lives. This board book is a perfect place to start teaching this important skill to young children. Most of the words have one page, but C for Calm has a double page and it really is the perfect title for this little gift book as it does sum up the feeling this book creates.
