Description
This colorful introduction to Vietnamese Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh touches lightly on his work to end the war in Vietnam and his eventual founding of the Plum Village community in France, focusing instead on the teachings of "Thây" (Teacher) about peace and living in the world with "mindfulness," or full awareness. Illustrated in color with photos and drawings throughout, and featuring activities inspired by Thây's values and beliefs and poems written by the teacher himself, this book explains to readers 7 to 9 how they can be braver, more caring, and happier in their own lives.

"The strongest part of the book suggests peaceful ways for children to have more power in their lives. Following a poem by Thich Nhat Hanh, Shaw quickly chronicles his life, including his move to France, where he now lives in a commune, gardening, writing, and teaching. She then briefly but effectively explains how to lead a mindful life, let go of anger, and grow the seeds of peace and love in one's heart. The clean design and the many color photos enhance the sense of tranquility."—Booklist
