To further elaborate, I found at the heart of each story an open-ended reflection often times, at least in my initial reading, an opportunity to reflect on human nature, namely our relationship with ourselves, the world around us inclusive of all its inhabitants. One thing which Dr.Bitkoff does and has done well over the course of his many books is to present the reader stories with a universal appeal, not bounded by culture or dogmatic thinking, that inspire reflection. Stylistically the stories are reminiscent of Aesop‘s fables.
A pertinent Native American quote encapsulates what I as a reader feel summarizes not just this book, but also Bitkoff’s corpus of work: “Tell me a fact and I’ll learn. Tell me a truth and I’ll believe. But tell me a story and it will live in my heart forever.” What I’ve gathered from this and Bitkoff’s other works are that stories are part of a living transmission owned by no one, passed from one seeker to another. They are a transient bridge into a potential moment of not only self-reflection but of recognition. If you are the type of reader who enjoys contemplative, spiritually inquisitive works stripped of ostentatious self-promotion and rigid labels this is a book for you.
The book is not only filled with great wisdom,but could be used to teach children many of life’s important lessons.
The personalities of the pond inhabitants stimulate us to ponder the meaning of life and our connections to “all that is.”
Children and adults alike will enjoy the journey into and through pond stories with turtles, grasshoppers, and others.
I highly recommend this unique book.
