"A wonderful book for kids on the preciousness of calming the heart and mind."
- Rev. Joan Jiko Halifax Abbot, Upaya Zen Center
"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, author of Sitting Together: A Family-Centered Curriculum on Mindfulness, Meditation & Buddhist Teachings.
"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.
