K-Gr 3&12;In this picture book exercise in mindfulness, psychologist and children's author Sileo invites primary grade readers to walk barefoot, play with the wind, share a story with a pet, or just hug someone they love. The work is written in easy-to-follow rhyming prose, supported by imaginative illustrations that express that "pausability" can occur at any time, day or night. It is ideal for a yoga storytime or as a bedtime read to encourage children to pause, take a breath, and go to sleep with a sense of appreciation. Though the font is rather small, elementary school teachers could use this title as a warm-up read before starting the day's activities, to provide a respite from work, or to stimulate concentration. An ending "Notes to Caregivers" explains mindfulness and offers ideas on how to join the world of "pausabilities." VERDICT A fine addition for school and public libraries to introduce mindfulness.&12;Kathia Ibacache, Simi Valley Public Library, CA
