The Tail of Max the Mindless Dog, A Children's Book on Mindfulness
The Tail of Max the Mindless Dog, A Children's Book on Mindfulness is a book about a little puppy named Max whose tail is oftentimes injured. Believing his tail to be the source of his pain, he sets out to catch it and tie it in a knot. In doing so, he develops a habit of running in circles. It is this habit of chasing his tail that causes him to miss out on all the fun in life. It is only when he has been introduced to Mindfulness: The Belly Breath, the Count of Ten, and Words of Affirmation that he is able to enjoy life fully. When that old habit tried to return, Max quickly applied what he learned and wonderful things began to happen for him. Max starts out in Sepia to allow children to visually experience Max's pain. Once Max is introduced to a newer, more positive way of living, the colors change. Max is printed in landscape 11 x 8.5 to allow the beautiful illustrations to be fully enjoyed by both child and reader. Max is intended for readers ages 6 - 8, though readers of all ages fully enjoy its message.
