Editorial Reviews

Review

"A Handful of Quiet is a lovingly illustrated book that brings this meditation to life. All you’ll need to practice it is a quiet spot and four ordinary pebbles." —Shambhala Sun

"For those times when you feel the need to give your children something more than your non-distracted attention, give them A Handful of Quiet. But first, take two handfuls for yourself." - Karen Maezen Miller author of Momma Zen: Walking the Crooked Path of Motherhood

"In a world that often buzzes and booms at children, this book offers a genuine place of peace. In A Handful of Quiet Thich Nhat Hanh has crafted an oasis for the soul and spirit that will serve your child throughout life."
Kim John Payne M.ED. Author of Simplicity Parenting

"Utilizes the child's imagination and invites them to enter meditation with joy and delight. I highly recommend this little jewel of a book.” Jacqueline Kramer author of Buddha Mom


Praise for A Pebble for Your Pocket:
“This book is a gem from a true spiritual master.” — Parenting with Spirit
