Striker the cat is unstoppable! He thinks that there is too much fun to be had, and no matter what his mama tells him, he never slows down. One day, a bump to the head brings this busy cat to a standstill. Will Striker finally listen to his mama and learn to make time for a little calmness?   


 


This charmingly-illustrated picture book for ages 3-6 aims to teach busy children about the benefits of taking time to sit quietly and clear their mind. Touching on the principles of mindfulness, it provides the perfect introduction to the differing feelings of chaos and calm and encourages children to find balance in their increasingly busy lives.
I just know that Striker, the active, bouncy kitten will reflect the experiences of many children. He never seems to stop! But Striker soon discovers that within him is a calm and peaceful space in which he can be just as wild and free. Stunning illustrations and a lyrical, rhyming text make this a really special book about an increasingly important subject.
