Your Mind Makes Thoughts Like Your Butt Makes Farts

A funny, gross book about mindfulness for kids.

Sometimes we have nightmares or fears, and anxieties can sneak into our day. 
And when you’re a kid, you don’t understand these thoughts or what they’re trying to say.
But this book will teach you how to make friends with your mind—
instead of fearing what’s inside. 
Your Mind Makes Thoughts Like Your Butt Makes Farts is unlike any other book about mindfulness for kids. With gross-out humor and hilariously disgusting illustrations, it will help kids understand that they don’t have to listen to everything their mind says—and realize that thoughts (like gas) will pass.

“This book elegantly (and sometimes disgustingly) explains a concept that it takes most people their entire lifetimes to learn: mindfulness. Every kid should have this read to them. Every person should read this!”—Emily V. Gordon, writer and producer

“As an anxious little girl with an overactive mind, I wish I had this book. Luckily, now I get it as an anxious adult woman!”—Zoe Lister-Jones, actor, producer, director, and writer

“It’s funny because it’s true! A delightful child’s point of view of a truth adults need to commit to memory; thoughts are not facts.”—Richard LaGravenese, screenwriter, The Fisher King and The Bridges of Madison County
