Editorial Reviews

Review

"This exquisite book offers guidance to us all."
— Alice Walker

"This is the real article, brought to us by streetwise bodhisattva, Anne Herbert, who authored the phrase you see on walls and bumperstickers, and Margaret Pavel, word wizard, systems thinker and global therapist, along with Dharma artist Mayumi Oda, whose wondrous frogs remind us that this time we awaken with all beings. Good things come in small packages. About as long as the Heart Sutra, it distills all we need to know right now in order to let our lives count in building a sustainable world."
— Joanna Macy

“Wow! This book is amazing. The message is so important and relevant! I believe that we all have the power! I love the way this book sends this message of goodness to children. Children are the future and this book conveys HOPE! It is rich in language, thought provoking and positive.”
—Marla Conn, Common Core Curriculum Standards assessment specialist

Format: Hardcover
This was a wonderful, spectacular book with beautiful illustrations and a wonderful message. with simplistic yet poetic words and a perfect theme, you cant go wrong with this book. Definitely one of the first books I will expose my children to. It depicts beauty, exposes the horrors of violence, and shows children how they can be leaders. Truly an amazing book.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Prophetic, hard hitting, incisive. Inspired by the life and work of the co-authors, I am no less enchanted by their book every time I read it. I cannot keep it on the shelf, it is my favorite book to share with people I want to reach from activists and opinion leaders to close friends and colleagues. Disarming in its beauty, devastating in its indictment of our current historical situation - buy this book if you want to Occupy your life, your community, our world with renewed vitality and conviction, a manifesto for our age.
