Not so this book. While well intentioned, and with some good moments, overall it falls flat. As strongly as Tolle's voice speaks to me in his other books, he fails to find his voice in this book.
There are many flaws. It is far too long to be a picture book, but the pictures will turn off older readers. The point of view character bounces around between sentences, which is a beginning writer's error that causes confusion for the reader. And the whole concept of a secret is not only the wrong type of thing to teach children in this era, but also unnecessary for this story.
Tolle has actually written another, far better for both younger audiences and adults. Check out Guardians of Being: Spiritual Teachings from Our Dogs and Cats . I like it better every time I read it, and older kids find it charming.
So this book is a simple, nice way to introduce a child to the concept of living more in the moment, and not living in constant fear of the uncertain future.
I am feeling a certain way or Worried or have a bit of anxiety, I pull this book out and I read the story. It’s a delightful story

The benefits of living in the Now and the problem of thinking too much are learnt through the examples of characters such as an ice-cream lady and even his pet cat.
If you believe that children should know how to experience inner secuirty when facing life’s challenging events, then this book is a good way to find out how.
Lovely story. Beautiful drawings.
