Baby Present combines the inherent love babies have for one another with a tongue-in-cheek take on mindfulness for their parents and caretakers. This is for the perfect gift for the emerging generation of calm, cool, kids and their caretakers! A wide diversity of the most photogenic 6—9 month-olds, all from Oakland and Berkeley, California, has been captured mid-smile while making unmistakable eye-contact with the infants to whom this book will be read. Baby Present celebrates the unadulterated ability all infants have to be in the present, showcasing their natural, inherent mindfulness and reminding those reading to them to enjoy this time in their babies’ lives, to breathe and practice mindfulness along with their baby, and to knowingly laugh at the trend of it all. Cultivating the mindfulness habit with babies can set them up with a coping and happiness skill for life. And when you’re not reading it to them, this book is perfect for ruminating about while chewing: it’s printed on the highest quality non-toxic cardboard with soy inks and rounded corners.
