Mari Posa learns what it means to enjoy being yourself in this stunning picture book about mindfulness by two renowned Latinx creators.With so much to do in so little time, Mari Posa is constantly on the move, flitting from flower to flower, practicing her camouflage poses, and planning for migration. She’s the busiest butterfly around. But does being productive mean she is happy? Mari couldn’t say. The only way she feels like a butterfly is by acting like one. Little does Mari know, the secret to feeling like herself is simply to focus her breath, find her quiet place, and follow her instincts.Literary giant Julia Alvarez extolls the importance of mindfulness, reflection, and self-care for young children in this gratifying picture book.
