Peaceful pigs demonstrate the many benefits of meditation.
Sometimes life seems like it's all about hurrying--so many places to go! And sometimes it's hard when things don't go your way--it can make a piggy angry and sad. So how do young piggies find a peaceful place in a frustrating world? They meditate! They find a quiet spot, a special place with a few simple things, and just breathe. They do this every day, feeling their breath going in and out. They slow down and calm down. Now it's easier to deal with whatever comes their way, and they have time to notice all the magical things in life, too!
"There's nary a lotus-blossom or a Bodhisattva to be found in the bright paintings of disarming piggies who tease their siblings, get mad, play video games, but also 'know when to take a break, find a quiet spot and just breathe, breathe, breathe.' Even families that normally regard meditation as so much New Age folderol may find this chipper offering both endearing and persuasive."--Booklist
