  • "Psychotherapist Regina E. McCarthy has written an amazing book to inspire children and adults with the wisdom of breath, awareness and self expression - an absolute gem which provides a practical solution for even minor P.T.S.D."

    Leighton Clark, L.C.S.W., Trauma & Body Psychotherapist, Creative Transitions, Ltd. & The Midwest Institute for Somatic Psychotherapy
  • Delightful and wise!  This book is a true gift and blessing for children and their parents. It will serve readers into adulthood as self-soothing tools are learned from Gilbert's experience — transforming energies that could have limited his future success and enjoyment of living. A warm, heart-opening, inspired book.

    Nancy Ging, LCSW, Holistic Psychotherapist, Columnist and author of Simplifying the Road to Wholeness
  • "As breathing is the access point to emotions, this book is a great introduction to breathing for healing and wholeness. Regina teaches children of all ages the importance of using their breath to slow down, stay connected to themselves, and know how to respond to life’s circumstances. "
