A Caldecott Honor Book * "An accessible, strikingly illustrated story and a thought-provoking meditation." -- Booklist, starred review* "Every word and image comes to make as perfect a picture book as can be." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review"Readers will fall easily into the rhythm of visits to Stillwater and his storytelling sessions, and many more will fall in love with the panda, whose shape and size offer the children many opportunities for cuddling." -- Publishers Weekly"Beautifully illustrated in two distinct styles, this book introduces readers to a Zen approach to the world, wrapped in a story about three siblings and their new neighbor, a panda....Appealing enough for a group read-aloud, but also begging to be shared and discussed by caregiver and child, Zen Shorts is a notable achievement." -- School Library Journal

Linda Collins on
This book is absolutely divine. I have bought it a couple of times as presents, as my kids love it, and so do I. Beautifully illustrated, beautiful story, suits from very young kids through to much older kids who will understand different elements. Highly recommended.

This is a great book! Great for teaching students about patience and tolerance without having too much to do with religion. Very good book for getting students to think about everyday life. Very relaxing for both students and parents!
Raewyn Patton on
A beautiful book with magnificent watercolour illustrations. Enough in themselves to calm an agitated mind but combined with three well chosen stories within a story the book allows for reflective thinking and a way to see things in a new way. Truly a 'Sophisticated Picture Book' and a deep clear pond to look into.
