Description

Join us for a very special storytime with Tai Snaith to celebrate her new picture book, Slow Down, World


This stunning picture book is a timely reminder for children and adults alike to slow down, stop and appreciate the world around us.

Sometimes life can seem so busy. We are always told: Quick! Hurry! Faster! With the world whizzing past, how often do we stop, look and appreciate the world around us?

From the fast-paced metropolis to the greener magical places of a young girl’s imagination, Slow Down, World is a whimsical journey towards peace and mindfulness. Charmingly illustrated and written from the heart, Tai Snaith captures the beauty of slower things in life. Inspired by the work of Jeannie Baker (Tai’s favourite as a child), each illustration is intricately sculpted using paper, ceramics and watercolour, often all at once.

Including practical tips on how to slow down, this book is a beautiful reminder that there is no rush.

‘Hand made and heartfelt. A beautiful book that bothers to breathe’

- Rhys Muldoon, Play School

‘This beautiful, heart-felt story will take all young readers on a thoughtful journey to a place where the world is slow, calm and more present. Isn't this what we all need in our busy lives? What a beautiful way to introduce the idea of spending more time noticing the small things in our lives, the important things that bring meaning to every day. Thank you Tai for weaving mindfulness into this story and providing a new way for young people to learn how to slow down, pay attention and enjoy what they are doing.’

– Dr Addie Wootten, CEO of Smiling Mind
