Kaya is looking for her heart song – the song that happy hearts sing. Her search takes her on a journey deep into the jungle where a broken down carousel waits for a very special song to make it turn again… Grounded in the principles of mindfulness, this joyful story set in the vibrant jungles of Malaysia will truly make your heart sing.

'This delightful and gentle story offers up a sublime slice of mindfulness, particularly needed by children who increasingly have so much to deal with in their young lives' – Read It Daddy
Stunning artwork and sweet story well told. A good way to introduce mindfulness to children.
Finding one's true self is a message for young ones to learn. The narrative made me imagine Kaya's own beat is a sullen staccato that builds to a lively chant that is moving. Kids will be delighted with the colorful illustrations too.
I love the way this book introduces meditation and mindfulness in a way that is easy for kids (and adults!) to understand! Its whimsical illustrations—especially those of the carousel—are a delight as well.
