Maybe: A Little Zen for Little Ones
Based on an ancient and beloved Zen fable, this picture book tells the story of a wise girl who experiences a series of events that at first seem lucky—or unlucky—but then turn out to be quite the opposite. A bike disappears, but then she gets a new one; she hurts herself, but then enjoys a nice day at home. For each incident, what happened may have been based on luck—or perhaps the girl simply does not get caught up in the emotion of the moment, understanding she can never know what an event might lead to. The beautiful themes and messages of this unique story are made accessible and relevant here to today’s children.
