Description: Moody Cow Meditates is the story of Peter the Cow, who is having a very bad day. So bad, in fact, that all of the kids at school make fun of him and call him Moody Cow.  The story details all of the big and little things that made Peter’s day bad. Finally, Peter’s day gets better when Grandpa Cow teaches him how to meditate and clear his mind. His day gets much better after that.

Uses: Moody Cow Meditates is an ideal story for younger elementary or preschool aged storytimes, especially when first introducing the concept and benefits of meditation for the first time. Teachers and librarians can read the book, and then lead students in a meditation activity.
