When I heard that Michael Leannah had a new book coming out this year, I knew I had to read it.
His previous release, Most People (2017), was a favorite of mine, and I couldn’t wait to read his latest release, Most Days.
And I’m so glad I did!
With the same heartwarming tone found in Most People, Most Days is all about taking the time to notice all the little things throughout our day that we so often take for granted. This book is the perfect introduction for young readers to the concept of mindfulness.
In Most Days, the term mindfulness is never used, but instead shown through the daily lives of a community, emphasizing that ordinary days can be extraordinary if we take the time to stop and notice.
Megan Elizabeth Baratta’s illustrations perfectly capture these ordinary but remarkable moments in our day, like the sun coming in through the window, the wind in our hair, a hug, or the turning of a page in a book.
Most Days is a great bedtime read, not just because it feels like a warm hug, but also because it presents the opportunity to practice gratitude with young readers and discuss the highlights of our days together.
Most Days is released next week (January 5, 2021), but you can preorder it today wherever you normally purchase books, including Bookshop and Amazon. (Please note: These are affiliate links.
