About the Book

You can squat like a frog or lounge like a cat--but if you want to sit like a buddha, there are seven key steps for taking your seat.

Sit with Me invites kids of all ages to learn meditation through playful rhymes and adorable illustrations. Justa Bug describes the seven-point meditation posture--from the top of the head to the bottom of the feet--in an easy and accessible way. With a spine straight like coins stacked on a plate and shoulders back like a vulture in flight, kids will learn the basics of sitting through encouraging verse. With a little practice, Sit with Me will help everyone in the family learn how to meditate easy and free.

“Justa Bug, a gray insect wearing saffron-colored robes and wielding a pointer, serves as the patient narrator of this step-by-step instructive picture book, aiming to teach readers ‘seven-point posture... if you want to be a buddha, too.’ A fun primer for those interested in Buddhist meditation.”—Publishers Weekly
