    Emma doesn't really like hurricanes. After a busy day of school and activities, Emma likes to sit still and rest. Her little brother, Henry, does everything but. She calls him The Lemonade Hurricane.

    Henry is a lot of fun when he's not storming through the house, so Emma decides to teach him how to be still. By showing him how to sit, bow, and breathe, Emma is able to calm the hurricane within Henry.

  • A perfect introduction to meditation for young readers, presented in a captivating story.
  • The illustrations bring the story to life with delightful whimsy.
  • Includes a back-of-book presentation of simple mindfulness techniques that can be shared at home and in the classroom.
  • In Planting Seeds, Thich Nhat Hanh, a Vietnamese Buddhist monk, teaches that by sitting still and meditating, the mind can become clear. Like Hanh's apple juice story, when a glass of lemonade is stirred, the pulp swirls around. When it sits quietly, the pulp settles and the liquid becomes clear. In this way, a glass of lemonade is a metaphor for how meditation and mindfulness work. That is why this book is called The Lemonade Hurricane.
  • Practicing mindfulness and meditation helps us tame the hurricane within.

    June 1, 2015
    Emma is a meditation pro, and it’s a good thing—her younger brother, Henry (aka the “Lemonade Hurricane”), has energy to spare. Sometimes that energy makes him “wild”: Morris shows Henry swinging from curtains, kicking down Emma’s toy castle, and whacking her with a pillow. Initially frustrated (“I really don’t like hurricanes”), Emma helps Henry understand how meditation can be calming; Emma pictures herself atop a faraway mountain, while Henry imagines himself balancing on an elephant. Closing notes on practicing mindfulness and meditation offer tips for readers, be they Emmas or Henrys. Though a tad optimistic, it’s a useful reminder of the patience involved in being a good sibling. Ages 4–8.

    Emma teaches Henry by example how to meditate and be mindful, especially after he has quenched his thirst and subsequently wound himself up with sugary lemonade. Narrator Emma opens the story meditating quietly with other children her age on mats. The room is a soothing, cool blue. A page turn shows younger brother Henry, red cup of lemonade in hand, hanging from orange drapes with copious evidence of his out-of-control behavior behind him. "Henry likes to run, wrestle, and roar, and drink lemonade. I call him The Lemonade Hurricane." The story continues with examples of Henry's rambunctiousness but also shows times when he is constructively engaged. Some readers will believe he is just a regular, active boy, but the story places emphasis on the negative effects of sugar. Hoping to quiet Henry, Emma shows him how to "Sit. Bow. Breathe." In time Henry gives it a try and successfully calms himself by pretending "he is on top of an elephant and has to bow really slowly so he does not fall off." Morris' ink-and-watercolor illustrations present a likable pair of Caucasian sibs; modulations in her palette accompany quietly fanciful imagery as Emma's lessons in meditation take hold. Extensive notes provide practical information and summarize a story from Thicht Naht Hanh that inspired this title. A child-friendly introduction to the practice of meditation and the benefits of mindfulness. (Picture book. 4-7)
