Abstract:

Offers various practices that children can do on their own or with others that will help them to transform anger and unhappiness and reconnect to the wonders of nature, and the joy of living in the present moment.

Combining the stories and meditation practices from the previous edition of A Pebble for your Pocket with those collected in Under the Rose Apple Tree and several new stories, this completely revised edition is comprised of Buddhist parables and stories from the author's own childhood experiences. They elucidate principles of Buddhism and mindfulness practice, giving young readers and their parents concrete advise on handling difficult emotions like anger. Written in a highly accessible style that doesn't rely on lot of jargon or difficult vocabulary, this collection emphasizes the importance.
