Josiah is busy and bored…until his dad invites him to quiet down through meditation.

Young Josiah narrates the guided meditation refrain that will bring a sense of calm and mindfulness to children and adults alike.

Breathe is written in rhyming verse – its laidback poetic flow is the perfect complement to the richly-hued illustrations. Suitable for all moments, Breathe is perfect for bedtime when a sense of calm is needed.


Julia Mallory is a writer, poet and creative. In November 2016, her debut collection of poetry, Black Mermaids, was released. Its title poem details a reimagining of the mythology surrounding mermaids: What if during the Transatlantic Slave Trade, kidnapped Africans aboard slave ships that attempted to flee or were thrown overboard in turn became Black Mermaids? In the summer of 2017, she released a children’s book, Kareemah and the Black Mermaids (buy) in an effort to address both the demand for more portrayals of mermaids of color for younger audiences and the need for more children’s literature featuring ethnically and racially diverse main characters. An engaging performer, Julia’s poetry and prose dazzles on both the page and the stage.
