Description de l'ouvrage

4 juin 2013
On an otherwise ordinary day, Elliot discovers something extraordinary: the power of mindfulness. When he asks his neighbor Carmen for a snack, he's at first disappointed when she hands him an apple - he wanted candy! But when encouraged to carefully and attentively look, feel, smell, taste, and even listen to the apple, Elliot discovers that this apple is not ordinary at all.

Lushly and humorously illustrated, No Ordinary Apple makes a traditional technique for training mindfulness a fun and enjoyable way for children to learn to slow down and appreciate even the simplest things.

Par Evelyn Leigh - Publié sur
We love this book!! No Ordinary Apple has been a bed time favorite of ours for weeks now!

We love the illustrations - Phil Pascuzzo does an amazing job on every page making Sara Marlowe's words come to life. The colors and the characters jump right off the pages. Fun and lighthearted, this book is a great read with a ton of wonderful healthy suggestions!

Snack time will never be the same again! I would highly recommend it to all kids, and even some adults.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 We need more books like this! 5 juillet 2013
Par Julianne Weinzimmer - Publié sur
Considering how poorly we eat as Americans and how little we think about the food we eat, where it came from, or how it impacts the earth, it's great to see these important ideas of mindfully eating being taught to youngsters. I like how the book promotes slowing down, something we rarely do, and appreciating what we have, and it also sends an important message about eating a fruit and vegetable-based diet. On top of that, the illustrations are really zany and fun, with lots of engaging images, strong use of color and unique perspectives and angles. I bought several copies of this book to give out to my friends' kids and will continue to do so. Highly recommend!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great for little ones 2 juillet 2013
Par L. Anderson - Publié sur
This book is great for young children who don't always want to eat what's on their plate (and for us adults who feel the same!). It's never preachy - in fact, it says all food can be enjoyed as long as you're mindful about it. The fun illustrations keep children entertained. This would be great for any school or library.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is a book about young Elliot and how he learns about "eating mindfully" ... 11 juin 2013
Par D. Fowler - Publié sur
Elliot was heading to his neighbor Carmen's house after school. As soon as he opened the door he was ready for a snack, but when she asked, "Would you like an apple," visions of candy danced through his head. Jelly beans, chocolate, and even a lollipop would do, but no apple. It just wouldn't do. "Sorry, I'm all out of candy," claimed Carmen, "But try this apple. It's very special." Elliot looked very closely at the apple and didn't see anything special at all. Perhaps if it was out of the ordinary it would give him superpowers, but the only way he could find out was to taste it.

The only way that Elliot was going to find out about how special that apple was to really take a close look at it. Carmen explained, "Eat the apple like you have never tasted one before. Only then will you discover what makes it so special." It wasn't the first time he'd ever eaten an apple, but it would be the first time he really paid attention to it. Elliot "rolled the apple around in his hands, checked out the color, listened to it, smelled it, and tasted it. Hmmm, there was something very different about the apple. Had he found something extraordinary about an ordinary apple?

This is an enchanting story about Elliot and how he discovers special things about food. This is not an ordinary book, but rather a contemplative read that imparts a lesson about food and "eating mindfully." The emphasis is on the fact that children, as well as adults, should pay attention to the food they eat and savor its many qualities. Rather than voraciously eating food Elliot learns by discovery that the simple apple has many extraordinary qualities that makes it special. The confident reader could tackle the text readily, but it would be best suited as a read and discuss book in a homeschool or classroom setting.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Originally not for us - but made it work... 30 mars 2014
Par N. Kaye - Publié sur
I'm sorry to say that this book really wasn't what I was hoping for - for our family. As a mother of two young boys (one with allergies and limited diet) we follow a pretty healthy non-processed diet. I loved the idea of this book and thought it was wonderful... until the end. The little boy is so proud of his mindful eating of the apple and learns that he can apply this to any food... and he can't wait to apply it to jelly beans, ice cream, macaroni & cheese and, best of all, pizza! When we got to the end both of my boys laughed so hard because, as my 9-year-old said, "I can't believe mom read us a book celebrating so much junk food!" We actually created a workaround by literally cutting out the last couple pages and gluing the final page down to the back cover! The illustrations are great and the first 3/4 truly are wonderful.
