Zen Socks: Hardcover

USD $17.99

On life’s journey…kindness is the key.

That is the simple yet powerful theme of this book. I read the first book in this series (Zen Shorts) to my children when they were little and thought the stories were beautiful. Just perfect! Short little tales but also powerful and filled with beauty – just like these. I had forgotten all about them until one day, 15 years later, when my daughter was in college, she said to me, “remember that story you always used to tell us about the farmer? I always remember it when things go wrong in my life and it makes me feel better.”

So, yes, I definitely recommend the first and this second book!

Leo and Molly love their new neighborhood. Most of all they love their friend Stillwater. The three friends are quite a team! From Caldecott Honoree Jon J Muth comes a story about sharing, another about patience, and a third about compassion. With warmth and fun, they learn from one another in the most surprising ways….

Praise for Zen Socks

“Lessons of patience, compassion, and sharing, delivered gently.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Appealing enough for a group read-aloud, but also begging to be shared and discussed by caregiver and child, Zen Shorts is a notable achievement.” —School Library Journal

“Both an accessible, strikingly illustrated story and a thought-provoking meditation.” —Booklist, starred review
