Calm In Your Palm: The Perfect Book for a Busy World

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Calm In Your Palm and is 100% my own opinion. Calm In Your Palm has not influenced, nor reviewed this post prior to it going live.

As a mama to almost 4 year old twins, I know the struggle of trying to manage all of the emotions that come along with toddler and childhood.

We're continuously searching for books, apps, shows, activities etc. to help our children cope with these feelings and feel at peace. We've searched Google and Pinterest hours on end and never really found anything that actually kept the kids attention long enough to be considered successful. 

It wasn't until Calm In Your Palm contacted me asking about my interest in their book that I found the perfect resource. I didn't know much about the book but the illustrations were bright, fun and absolutely adorable and the brief description seemed so fitting. As adults we're always trying to find ways to find peace and calmness in a world full of chaos but sometimes we forget to do the same for our little ones.

When we recieved Calm In Your Palm my kids lit up, the book is beautiful and it has a small blanket featuring 4 calming colors which allows your little ones to interact with the story while it's being read. We read the book frequently and they just love it! There's even a FREE app that can be downloaded as well as a fun singalong!

To make it even better, Calm In Your Palm supports local organizations, including Positive Tomorrows right here in Oklahoma, in order to help fight the cycle of poverty. 

Calm In Your Palm even has a GIVEAWAY going on right now, which you can enter by clicking here.
