Toby is a teddy bear in a toy shop. Longing for a family to live with, he jumps into the arms of his new owner from his shelf in the shop. His adventure leads him to show his new friends a special way of staying happy and calm when things get difficult. What will Toby find at his new home? Who else lives there? And how does he always stay such a peaceful, happy, and loving bear?

Rae is the mother of three children and grandmother of six, who lives in Australia. She is a retired psychologist who has also been a teacher. She meditates regularly and finds that it brings her infinite peace and happiness. She would love the current generation of children living in difficult times to also know this peace and happiness.

    What a beautifully written book with such an important message. The story exudes love and calm. Meditation is such an important way to maintain a balance in your life and for a person to learn it at a young age can only be a positive lesson. A delightful book for young people which includes a way to show them how to negotiate their path through life.

  • Fiona Moran

    Toby, the Bear who Meditates is a wonderful book to engage young children in the practice of meditation. As a primary school teacher, I have used this book to model easy meditation techniques to children who need a break from the busyness of the classroom. A beautifully written book which children can relate to and enjoy while learning!

    While I have the same surname, we aren't related. What a great introduction to meditation for children. Two of my younger children read this the moment we had it and both loved it and did some meditation of their own.

  • Lee Dwyer

    ‘Toby, The Bear Who Meditates’ is a delightful book, that walks young children through the benefits of meditation, as well as highlights the impact of behaviour on others. Rae Paterson cleverly crafted the story to show children how feelings are expressed and then unpacks a positive way of handling their feelings through meditation. This book is so necessary for young people to assist them in managing big feelings appropriately. Rae Paterson’s passion for enabling young people to understand meditation and its benefits is evident and it will support many children as they read this delightful picture book, with its wonderfully entertaining teddy bear characters and the fun they get up to.
