Imagine a peaceful garden, full of wonderful things to discover.
This book introduces you to the history of meditation, before taking you through a relaxing guided meditation in a beautiful garden.
Poppy O'Neill wanted to create a book that captured some of the calm, mindful experience of a guided meditation. She visited a beautiful park called Bishop's Palace Gardens for inspiration, taking lots of notes and smelling all the flowers.

Pages 46 and 47 allow children to re-visit the content of the book, supporting comprehension skills, vocabulary development and recall.
