Marquez Knolls resident and best-selling author Teresa Anne Power of the award-winning children’s book series Little Mouse Adventures hosted a virtual launch and reading of the second book in the series, “Mindfulness at the Park.”
The event took place on September 1 through Facebook Live: “It was really fun,” Power said to the Palisadian-Post.
It was different having a virtual launch because it reached an international audience versus an in-person bookstore launch, Power shared. People posted in the chat group, and participated in a raffle and free giveaways.
“I gave away a lot of free things and people donated,” Power continued, including a donated kids yoga mat.
The story, illustrated by Emma Allen, follows curious, lovable Little Mouse and his best friend, Mr. Opus, the wise tabby cat, as they visit a bustling park for the first time. The book playfully teaches children how to deal with emotions, new experiences and friendship through yoga.
“The book was the number one new release in children’s social emotional skills and the number one new release in children’s health and fitness on Amazon,” Power added.
The next books to look forward to in the series are “Yoga at the Museum” and “Mindfulness at School,” which Power will be penning next.
Each week Power is hosting a free Facebook Live event for children. It is an interactive kids’ yoga storytime with yoga moves, games, readings, spelling out names and more. It is primarily for ages 3 to 8 and includes a book giveaway.
Power first came to international attention by founding Kids’ Yoga Day and the international bestseller, “The ABCs of Yoga for Kids” series.
The renowned yoga expert and author has a large social media following, and her books have sold over 270,000 copies worldwide.
Power taught yoga to kindergarten and first grade at St. Matthew’s Parish School for 10 years.
She is a graduate of the University of Southern California. She graduated with a J.D. from Pepperdine University School of Law and wrote the “ABCs of Law School: Diary of the First Year Student.”
