Rob Holmes and Master Owl is about to start a Mindfulness Tour of Devon Primary Schools. If your school would like Rob to visit, here are the details.
Some feedback from teachers and parents:
“I read Master owl meets Miss Bunny with my son Jake, who is six years old. He really enjoyed it and throughout the story we kept stopping to talk about different feelings, which is not something he finds easy to do. He could relate to Miss Bunny’s feeling of being overwhelmed and not knowing what to do. He really liked the idea of stopping and breathing in and out slowly.
As I was reading it to him, he started practising it. He said that he could do it if he had a grumpy moment with his sister, for example. When we finished the book, he asked me to photocopy the four-step guide at the back to put in each room of our house so we could all do with a ‘Magical Mindful Moment’ together if things got a bit too much. When we did this together, he said he was very calm and relaxed. Fantastic. Absolutely love it. These skills will help all children and carry on throughout life and the book introduces it in such a child friendly way. Amazing!
Thank you so much, it was quite enlightening as a parent to see how much both children, individually, reacted to the story, it was heart-warming. Keep writing! You have a gift. Thanks again,
"A huge thank you for this morning, we were all very inspired by your talk and thoroughly enjoyed listening to your stories. It was a great success across each class, we do hope you will visit us again."

"I shared Master Owl's story in my Mindfulness Class for Children. It was a super hit, my students loved it and said that they would like to hear more of these stories. An amazing story to introduce mindfulness to young people. I have bought a second copy for my niece.”
