Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review
"Mindful Monkey, Happy Panda is designed to teach young readers the value of mindfulness. Although mindfulness is a practice especially advocated by Buddhism, Mindful Monkey, Happy Panda is intended for children of any religious faith or background, as it describes the idea in simple and secular terms. The bright, friendly illustrations bring this invaluable parable to vivid life. Highly recommended."
Thich Nhat Hanh
"This beautiful story shows us all how to dwell peacefully and happily in the present moment."
Mamma's Bacon Blog
"A great read!"
