HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Social media sensation Pashyn Santos is excited to announce the release of her children’s picture book titled “My Mom and I”. Written by Pashyn Santos and illustrated, by Mandy Quitog, “My Mom and I “ teaches the value of being present and in the moment.
“In a world that’s more often than not just too busy with work, home life, trends, and distractions that keep us operating on autopilot. My Mom and I will encourage children to experience the here and now. A space of mindfulness, self-awareness, and balance.”, said Pashyn. She continued, “ I wrote this book as a great reminder especially to myself that children have an innocence in them from the beginning (we all did). They aren’t yet caught up in things like; finishing to-do lists, or chasing some perceived wonderful future event that is more exciting than the present moment. They are living presently, absorbing what they experience. I wanted to help them understand that they are way ahead of us all. That for us adults Life has gotten us, but through mindfulness we can take back and enjoy life. But children already get this.”
Narrated by character “Keiki” created by Pashyn, She takes us through her day spent with mom. Moment by moment. Towards the end of the book we see the Mom character take time to breath as a way to bring her mind back to “the now”. But we then realize that our Keiki was living in it all along.
“My Mom and I” can be purchased at Hallmark locations on Oahu, The Refinery Honolulu at Kahala Mall, or online at : www.pashynfruit.com.
