Zen Shorts by Jon J. Muth
Recommended for: Grades K-3

Beautifully illustrated, Zen Shorts is filled with gentle stories and life lessons for both children and adults. The book is organized around three children, Michael, Addy, and Karl, who meet their new neighbor, Stillwater, a panda. As their friendship with Stillwater evolves, he tells them classic stories from Zen Buddhist literature. I freely admit that my own life has been impacted by some of these stories. Not for children only! A 2006 Caldecott Honor book.
