The Magic Moment

Illustrated by Sheena Dempsey

The Magic Moment is a picture book that helps children explore difficult emotions and face their fears. Freddie is excited about his first trip to the swimming pool. But when he gets there, he finds it scary. So scary in fact, that he just wants to go home… Later that evening, Nana teaches him a secret trick. It’s called the Magic Moment Trick and it gives you superpowers when you’re facing something scary. You simply close your eyes and think of your happiest memory and squeeze your finger and thumb together. The charming story, containing an easy mindfulness technique, helps children return to the present moment.
