Product description


"Parents will appreciate the call to slow down and pay attention, advice that's good for a lifetime. For children, the book will open new perspectives on the fruit of knowledge." (Publishers Weekly)

"Illustrates the fact that we can all learn how to eat more mindfully--no matter what age you are at or which foods you love to eat!" (Susan Albers, psychologist and author of Eating Mindfully)

"Sarah and Philip show us how, with a simple shift in perspective, something as ordinary as eating an apple can be transformed into an extraordinary experience." (Susan Kaiser Greenland, author of The Mindful Child)

"With humor and a light touch, No Ordinary Apple takes us cheerfully through the exercise of eating an apple mindfully, using each of our five senses, one by one, leaving readers wanting to try it themselves!--" (Kerry Lee MacLean, author of Moody Cow Meditates)

"Deliciously fun to read." (Sharon Salzberg, author of Real Happiness)

"It is a book than changes lives. Take a bite and taste how good it is yourself." (Daniel Rechtschaffen, founding director of the Mindful Education Institute)

"This delightful book brings the playful curiosity of mindfulness and mindful eating to life so vividly my mouth was watering." (Dr. Amy Saltzman, founder and director of the Association for Mindfulness in Education)

"Wonderful! I read it to my daughter and she asked for an apple! And then wanted me to read it to her again!" (Frank Jude Boccio, author of Mindfulness Yoga)

"Written for kids, but equally as appealing to adults, this is a no ordinary book about mindful eating." (Deborah Schoberlein, author of Mindful Teaching and Teaching Mindfulness)

'"With humor and a light touch, Marlowe has given parents and teachers a fun way to introduce the practice of mindful eating." (Kerry Lee MacLean, author of Moody Cow Meditates)
