Striker, Slow Down!: A calming book for children who are always on the goStriker, Slow Down!: A calming book for children who are always on the go by Emma Hughes
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Encouraging calmness in children is a noble goal, but I'm not sure the book succeeded. The majority of the book is spent seeing how energetic Striker the kitty is, and how exasperated his parents are as a result, but I'm not convinced that his energy is a bad thing. After taking a bump to the head, Striker requires a little quiet time for recovery, and finally learns how to relax.

I would have loved to see more of an explanation on how Striker learns to embrace calmness, other than just sitting quietly and breathing.

Also, as an aside, the illustrations were beautiful.

I received this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
