For 20 years I've delighted in the story collections of Idries Shah. I'm very pleased with his entire new series of children's books, especially 'The Lion Who Saw Himself in the Water'. As my wife and I read this story to young children in our family, we can see their eyes light up. The kids strongly identify with all of the animals in the book, particularly the lion as he overcomes his fears and learns something about his own individual indentity and how it connects to other people. I have to confess, that I've picked up the book several times and read it for my own enjoyment. It somehow soothes my mind after a tough day at the office.

With illustrations that make you want to step right into the picture, this book is a great telling of great classic for little kids. Sometimes I think we forget or don't realize just how powerful certain images and impressions we get from our early childhood books really are, and just how much they can impact our lives. My 4-year old adores this book. And what a great image for her to take through life ¿ the realization that she might be hindered by fear of her own reflection.

I have enjoyed reading this book to my son again and again. We refer back to it often when he is confronting his fears. A great reminder that not everything is as it seems.
