"Funny but to the point, The Secret to Clara's Calm is an
excellent storybook for parents, educators, and young readers.
Beautifully illustrates how meditation supports self-regulation and
improves friendships."--Sumi Loundon Kim, author of Sitting
"What an awesome little book. Tamara Levitt has written the charming story of a (mostly) happy girl who keeps freaking out her friends with furious anger outbursts. Her solution--meditation--is presented is an honest and realistic way, and should be a great help to a great many young folks. Personally, as a wildly dysregulated kiddo (up one moment, down the next), I could have used this advice. This is ninja training for the 21st century. Try it out!"--Jeff Warren, mindfulness teacher and co-author of Meditation For Fidgety Skeptics
