In my opinion, books are the best accessory.
Thanks to Twitter Friends for creating a delicious meme- Treat Tuesday.

I’ll go with a book and a treat.
Good People Everywhere by Lynea Gillen, illustrated by Kristina Swarner – This is the second featured #TreatTuesday book connected with mindfulness. This is a beautiful, simple picture book appreciating people taking action to help others around the world. Then at the end, there is a peaceful activity for children to close their eyes, sit back, and reflect on all the people that help them and others. Really enjoyed this book. Especially thrilled to notice that this book was published in Portland, Oregon! Recommended for those who want to introduce mindfulness, action, and appreciation to younger children.
Goodreads Summary: “Winner of Mom’s Choice Award, Teacher’s Choice and Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards: A colorful picture book that will warm the hearts of children and adults alike, each of its pages contain endearing examples and vibrant illustrations to inspire children to grow into grateful, caring, and giving people. It provides a wonderful way to calm children before sleep, ease their fears, and help them develop an appreciation for good work. Also included are activity pages to help children practice skills for creating gratitude, compassion, and beauty in daily life.”
