Join author and educational psychologist Dr Jill Reed for Read Out Loud as she shares her picture book MALEKU’S GIFT illustrated by Patricia Coester. Filled with breathing exercises to help young readers stay present and grounded, this is a sweet story of discovery and navigating the draw of screens and technology.

About the Book

Maleku is a young and curious monkey in the jungle of Costa Rica with a close connection to nature, unaware of the powerful tool she has in her own breath. Maleku finds a phone, left behind by a young visitor and she longs to explore the world she sees inside it. From place to place Maleku meets people, experiences wondrous sights and records her adventures. As she travels, the phone becomes more important than the places and faces, until she finds herself alone and sad, disconnected from herself and everything around her. When she puts the phone away, and breathes into her heart, she discovers her true mission.
