“Children are invited to nurture a healthy love of their body in this wonderful book guiding them through mindful awareness of the inner sensations that help them feel grounded and comfortable with their inner life. Jennifer Harper Cohen has created a marvelous gift for parents and teachers to guide children to healthy self-awareness and gratitude for the awesome gift of life!”
Daniel J. Siegel, MD, executive Director, Mindsight Institute, New York Time Bestselling Co-Author, Parenting From the Out, Whole Brain Child and the Power of Showing Up
“This beautiful gratitude book should be on everyone’s shelf. What a wonderful addition to a nighttime routine as a calming body scan cultivating gratitude for all that our bodies do for us. The emphasis on our insides vs what we look like on the outside helps kids see how amazing they truly are while helping them slow down and rest. There is no age limit to this book! This “meditation” can be helpful for all ages and remind us to love ourselves on a deeper level.”
Susan Verde, author of #1 New York Times bestselling book, I Am Love
"With a steady cadence and easy to remember rhymes, Jennifer Cohen Harper crafted a lovely bedtime ritual and placed it between the covers of her new children’s book. It’ll only take a couple of times reading this book together before children will be able to run through it on their own, even when their parents are away or already tucked into bed themselves.”
Susan Kaiser Greenland, author of Mindful Games and The Mindful Child, founder of Inner Kids
“A wonderful lesson in mindfulness, gratitude and appreciation and connection with our own bodies. I can’t wait to read this with my kids at the end of the day as we all reflect.”
Christopher Willard, PsyD, author of Growing Up Mindful
“This is a little book that serves a big purpose (or two or three.) It will give you a meaningful bedtime ritual to share with your children. It will help your kids relax from head to toe. And it will do something that very few of us know how to do: teach our children that their bodies are not just objects to make look a certain way, but instead are miracles to be grateful for, to take care of, and to love. Thank you for this book!”
Elizabeth Lesser, New York Times bestselling author and cofounder Omega Institute
"Thank You Body, Thank You Heart, is a treasure of a book that helps children connect gratefully and compassionately to their bodies and minds. The loving messages and soothing illustrations make it a perfect bedtime book with a calming and affirming message."
Mona Delahooke, PhD, author of Beyond Behaviors
"A perfect way to end the day! Jennifer Cohen Harper has created an absolutely beautiful way to connect children easily to gratitude and self compassion. What a wonderful way to help little ones shift into a relaxed and restful state at night. We all need this book!"
Mariam Gates, Bestselling author of The Good Night Yoga Series, Meditate with Me + Sweet Dreams: Bedtime Visualizations for Kids
"This gem of a book is for kids but not just for kids! Its heart melting body scan will help you and your child appreciate your bodies from the inside out. Its central message that our bodies are valuable for what they are and do offers protection from cultural attitudes about body worth being tied to how it looks."
Mary NurrieStearns, MSW, LCSW, RYT
"This is an utterly charming, rhyming narrative that offers a nightly practice enhanced by colorful illustrations. I believe any child will delight in and benefit from the story. It's a wonderful way to teach gratitude and compassion."
Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness
"Thank you Body, Thank you Heart is a treasure for any child advocate hoping to instill a strong sense of self love and body acceptance in the children in their lives. In a culture that bombards us with messages of inadequacy and conditions of worthiness, this book is a preventative tool for negative body image and comparison. The illustrations are inclusive and thoughtful, and adults and children alike will benefit from the message to honor and revere your body and all it does to bring you joy and peace."
Melody Moore, Ph.D., E-RYT
"Children feel very vulnerable at night. This warm and wonderful book helps them get to sleep while teaching beautiful lessons of mindfulness, gratitude, and self-acceptance. I wish someone had read it to me when I was young!"
Rick Hanson, PhD, author of Buddha's Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love, and Wisdom
