Kaya listens to her mother hum while she meditates. Her mother explains that everyone has a heart song and you just have to quiet yourself and listen. Kaya goes out to play along a path in the jungle and sees an old friend, Pak, sitting by a hut. She learns that he is guarding an old carousel with decorative elephants. She hops on one of the elephants and pulls away the vines. A whisper of a song surrounds her.

Boom taktak boom taktak boom
Shick shak shook
Boom taktak boom taktak boom
Shick shak shook
It’s then that Kaya discovers her heart song. What do you think happens next?

Author Diwa Tharan Sanders shares a delightful story of mindfulness. Beautifully illustrated with vibrant colors along with a very diverse cast of characters children can imagine their own heart song. Parents and teachers can open up dialogue on how kids can quiet their minds and find their heart song. Young readers can learn about yoga and how to meditate. Simple sentences also make this a great first read for any beginner.
