Author Cindy Montenegro and her book MY MIND IS A MOUNTAIN/MI MENTE ES UNA MONTAÑA

My Mind Is a Mountain / Mi Mente Es Una Montaña (Lil' Libros)

Introduce your little ones to the metaphor that the mind is a mountain and how it can powerfully handle all emotions from the lowest of the lows to the highest of the highs - and everything in between - in both English and Spanish.

My mind is a mountain, powerful and strong

My Mind is a Mountain is a metaphor for the heights a mind can reach in powerfully handling all emotions from the lowest of the lows to the highest of the highs - and everything in between.

Refreshing debut hard cover by a new talent, Cindy Montenegro Delgado, LMFT. My Mind is a Mountain takes little ones to new heights and enlightens them on being aware of their spectrum of emotions.

This hardback is perfect for parents eager to introduce their children to acknowledging their full range of emotions and to understand that feelings of great enthusiasm and happiness can balance out those of sorrow and anger. The mind is a mountain, and it's up to little ones to climb it.

Cindy Montenegro is a Salvadoran-American mental health therapist and storyteller from Paramount, California. She received her graduate degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Chapman University and a bachelor's degree from UC Santa Barbara. In the therapy room, Cindy works with people of all ages to explore their emotions and strengths to create a roadmap to self-love, growth, and healing. Her imagination is influenced by her childhood, love of the outdoors, and passion for mental health. Cindy hopes that her writing will inspire readers to celebrate all of their emotions, no matter how big or small they may be! This is her first children's book.

Praise for My Mind Is a Mountain / Mi Mente Es Una Montaña -

“Your mind is a mountain, powerful and strong./ You can handle every emotion,/ no matter how big or how small!” instructs a child narrator in this earnest bilingual guide to managing feelings. In Montenegro’s plainspoken prose, printed in English and Spanish, the narrator, portrayed with brown skin, first recounts the bodily sensations that accompany happiness, sadness, excitement, and anger. Adigun’s illustrations portray basic, communicative facial expressions and sympathetic backdrops (e.g., shadowy blue green for sadness). Having acknowledged the reality of overwhelming feelings, the child recommends visualizing oneself atop a mountain, employing a deep breathing technique, and talking to others. Finally, the yogic child addresses the reader: “How are you feeling right now?/ Who would you like to share your feelings with today?” Though the segue to interactivity comes suddenly, the volume succeeds in making emotional regulation feel achievable. - Publishers Weekly
