Tomorrow Girl

USD $18.99 Tax Included

A Tale of Mindfulness

Catch up with a girl called Tomorrow —you better be quick because she’s always in a hurry! ‘You’ll catch up with the next day if you keep rushing,’ says Tomorrow’s mother. But when Tomorrow meets worrywart Yesterday and trips over thoughtful Today, her whole world begins to slow down.

Tomorrow Girl is a quirky tale delivering a timely reminder about the importance of mindfulness and what can happen when we allow ourselves time to be in the moment amidst a modern-day rush. It’s brimming with wonderful teachable moments for children to reflect on how they can be more mindful in their everyday lives and discover new friendships just by being in the moment.

Tomorrow Girl is an interesting way to focus on being in the moment and appreciating people and places around you. The story and illustrations are calming and enjoyable.” Click here for the full review.


Dr Tanya McDonnaugh founder of TMC Psychology writing for Motherdom
“With so many sources of potential anxiety for our little ones at the moment, it is easy for children to get caught up in thinking about where they need to get to, things that have not gone to plan in the past, or worries about what the future holds. This book is a wonderful introduction to the therapeutic benefits of stopping to notice the beauty that is around you, of acknowledging your past and considering your future, but also taking pleasure in the here and now.” Click here for the full review.


Educate Empower
“Teachers and parents can not only open discussions with the little people in their lives about slowing down and just being but can also think about their own lives and how busy we often make them unnecessarily.” Click here for the full review.

Reading Time
“This charming book echoes the tradition of fables; good lessons learned by engaging characters who discover something new by chance – an awakening.” Click here for the full review.


What book next?
“Tomorrow hardly sees a thing, rushing here and there. Yesterday is stuck in the anxiety of past mishaps and things gone wrong, too scared to move beyond them. Today will sit and watch tadpoles, lie in the grass to watch clouds or sit in a tree – quiet, still, seeing and appreciating the day he is in.

Mindfulness is a skill to be learnt and cherished so we don’t miss the important things in life. Nature, a smile or a new friendship. Loved it.” Click here for the full review.
