Carlos is a lonely caterpillar who lives in a beautiful field of sunflowers. Although there is much to admire from the outside about where he lives, his inner world is tormented with unhappiness and grief because none of the insects want to be his friend. They tease him constantly and this makes him feel sad and lonely. Join Carlos in this epic adventure of hope, friendship, and transformation. This ageless treasure is a great book for young readers, caregivers and educators sharing messages about self-worth, self-love, and growth. Reflections and discussion activities are included focusing on how to use mindfulness to become aware of thoughts, emotions, and physical experiences in the body as they arise in the present moment.
