Format: Paperback
It is a great book. Our 6 year old girl laughed a lot when Ziji tried to sit in the meditation posture (and fell backwards). She also noticed that his hair was all tidy when he meditated and messy when he didn't. Dharma for children should be fun and this book is definetely funny! Highly recomended.

Format: Paperback
Its hard to explain mindfulness and meditation to children, but books like this certainly help. The kids love the story and I think just the exposure they get from reading stories like this and watching mommy and daddy meditate can give them an idea of what its all about.

I bought this book for a family with children younger than 10.
They all enjoyed it, especially the drawings of Ziji meditating.
I'm trying to share my enjoyment of mindfulness with the little ones.
