    According to the authors, Nikolaj Flor Rotne and Didde Flor Rotne “Everybody Present: Mindfulness in Education” is meant to “demonstrate how mindfulness techniques can transform not just children but the adults who teach them.” Reading the title and the blurb on the back of the book, I assumed it was going to be mostly focused on children in the classroom and how to create a better environment for them to learn in. It does touch on this, but that is not what the main focus of the book is. There According to the authors, Nikolaj Flor Rotne and Didde Flor Rotne “Everybody Present: Mindfulness in Education” is meant to “demonstrate how mindfulness techniques can transform not just children but the adults who teach them.” Reading the title and the blurb on the back of the book, I assumed it was going to be mostly focused on children in the classroom and how to create a better environment for them to learn in. It does touch on this, but that is not what the main focus of the book is. There are a lot of stories from the authors’ lives (which I love) about their journey and how the book came into being. There are also a lot of stories to help Illustrate a point and there are mindfulness exercise such as keeping a gratitude journal, deep breathing and breath awareness. That is what this book excels at: how to breath, how to calm yourself, how to acknowledge feelings such as anger without letting the feelings dictate our behavior. If you are looking for direct skills that can be instituted immediately in the classroom, then this book probably is not for you. I thought some of the ideas were lovely, such as a minute of silence before class, and although I would love if my children’s teacher could implement sessions where the kids focus on breath, I know that you would also get a lot of parents upset that this was being taught to their children. They would not see it as mindfulness but as a way to “convert” kids in a way they would not like. I do not agree with that, but that is the reality. Although from the title it does sound like it is centered around the classroom, the book is actually written for anyone who reads it; a parent, teacher, friend, mentor, yourself. I think that the title is actually a little misleading. You can use it with children, but it is not limited to that. Overall I enjoyed the book with the true stories, the stories to help make a point, and the various exercises within. I think that anyone who picks this up can use it to help themselves become more aware and mindful. **This book was received through GoodReads Member Giveaway. This did not influence my opinion in any way.**
