Matching books with readers apt to enjoy a particular title is part of our job here at Tilbury House. When we first released the book The Lemonade Hurricane in October of 2015, we set our wheels into motion, striving to find the right audience for this wonderful little book. The story itself has appeal to any young reader; After all, it’s got the coolest illustrations around, sibling conflict, identifiable characters, and imaginative resolutions. The deeper message of the book, however, is that all children house the power to calm, to quiet, to transport themselves. With basic, easy-to-implement mindfulness/meditation techniques, the modern family can slow its harried pace and bring peace to their home. These families can be found within the vast audience of the lifestyle site Tiny Budhha, a place where author, Licia Morelli, had long been posting her insights.
We are very excited to direct you to their site, which hangs its hat on the idea that we can all reflect on simple wisdom and learn new ways to apply it to our complex lives. That line alone makes it the perfect home for The Lemonade Hurricane. And this week – this week only! – they are talking more about the book, interviewing its author, and giving away 5 copies to those who leave a comment! Even if you don’t win, you should pick up this book from your local bookseller, our website (free shipping!), Amazon, or Barnes & Noble. Mindfulness and meditation have the power to transform yourself and your home.
