I found myself nodding my head several times throughout the book as I read lines such as:
"You are here and it's right now. Don't dwell on hows and whys."
"You have exactly what you need; there's nothing more to win."
"When should won't match with how things are, try opening your mind."
And I laughed out loud when reading:
"The jaguar slipped into the night (which monkey didn't mind!)."
I also greatly enjoyed the material at the back of the book. The author included several helpful sections (a "Discussion" page, suggestions for "Working with your Mind", etc.), which are great to further your child's (or your own) practice and perspective.
