About the Story

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 a fast-paced metropolis to the greener, magical places of a young girl’s imagination, Slow Down, World is a whimsical journey towards mindfulness.

Learn the importance of making your own way, how good it is to take your time, and how to be brave

Charmingly illustrated and written from the heart, Tai Snaith captures the beauty of the slower things in life. 

Read by the delightful, Emilie Zoey Baker, Slow Down, World is a beautifully reassuring and very special story that you'll want to watch again and again.
