This introduction to meditation takes the form of a beautifully imagined, beautifully crafted picture book for teens and young adults. Through the young protagonist, Sam, and her friend Taru, a tree spirit, the reader is first led to understand WHY meditation is helpful, and then, in easy steps, taught HOW to meditate. I call it a picture book in that each page is illuminated by a richly textured, evocative photo or diagram, but "Sam and the Giant Tree" relates to a child's picture book in the way that a graphic novel relates to a comic book. The pictures enrich and instruct without trivializing the message. With all the chatter about pre-teens and teen-agers are over-stressed by the demands of modern education and social interaction, it is wonderful to find a book which can help solve the problem. I would recommend this book for bright junior high students and high-schoolers, particularly ones who are a bit open to fantasy.
