Book Description

Cute, adorable Max is sure to become your child's favorite story character. And by the time you are even half way through reading, your little one will be able to say with you Max's words of affirmation! In this beautifully written and spectacularly illustrated story of The Tail of Max the Mindless Dog, Max has a habit that is preventing him from enjoying his life fully. Seeing his friend missing so much happiness, Ross sets out to teach Max newer, more productive habits. Through the technique of belly breaths, with words of affirmation, Max learns to apply the practice of Mindful living to his previous mindless way of existing. We all have habits; some are beneficial, others are not. We learn some conscientiously, others we develop slowly over time. Usually, habits are minor, and are not harmful to those we love or us. Even minor habits, when left unattended may develop to become obstacles. Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present. When you are mindful, you observe your thoughts and feelings from a distance, without judging them good or bad. Instead of letting your life pass you by, mindfulness means living in the moment and awakening to experience. Through this beautiful story, the child in your life will learn to experience living in a state of active, open attention on their present – each and every day.
