The books coauthors are a husband and wife who introduce 14 Catholic saints and urge readers to emulate their mindfulness through calming activities. Following an anecdote about Francis of Assisi calming the wolf of Gubbio, readers can try a breathing and body movement exercise: "Take three slow, deep breaths in and out. What a relaxed wolf you are!" In another exercise meant to conjure the strength of Joan of Arc, readers visualize "a soft, white heavenly light... covering you from your head all the way to your toes." Corsini illustrates in graceful art that expresses the kindness and dignity of the figures. An unconventional and inviting approach to Catholic mindfulness. Recommended for ages 2-12.
