A beautiful, wise and summery book “Mop Rides the Waves of Life” by writer and surfer Jaimal Yogis has arrived in the Sea Library. Mop loves to surf but struggles with mood swings until his mum shows that it is possible to surf those waves too!
If only life could be like surfing! Having “funny” hair and being embarrassed in school is hard, but when little surfer Mop studies the lessons of the waves—breathing, letting the bad waves go by, and riding the good ones—he learns how to bring the mindfulness and joy of surfing into his whole life.
Celebrated San Francisco surfer-journalist-dad Jaimal Yogis teaches 4-8 year olds timeless beach wisdom with the story of Mop, a sensitive and fun-loving kid who just wants to be in the ocean.
Going to school and navigating classmates can be hard—but all that goes away when little surfer Mop paddles out in the waves. With a few tips from his clever mom, Mop studies the wisdom of the water and learns to bring it into his life on land: taking deep breaths, letting the tough waves pass, and riding the good ones all the way. With newfound awareness and courage, Mop heads back to land—and school—to surf the waves of life.
With stylish full-color beachy illustrations from cover to cover.
“Mop Rides the Waves of Life: A Story of Mindfulness and Surfing” is published by Plum Blossom in 2020. Thank you, for sending a copy to the Sea Library. It looks good in here!
