“Zen Socks”


9780545166690_p0_v1_s192x300 Jon J. Muth, author, illustrator, and Caldecott Honor Book winner, is back with another beautifully crafted story featuring Stillwater.  Stillwater is a panda bear who may or may not be a Zen master.

Leo and Molly are Stillwater’s new neighbors.  Very soon all three become great friends, who will learn from each other, and share magical adventures.  Molly learns about patience.  Leo and Stillwater learn about sharing.  All three, on a beach adventure, learn about making a difference.

Geared for readers ages 4-8, Muth explores the meanings of kindess and patience.  His watercolor and ink drawings subtly illustrate the importance of generosity and compassion in everyday life.
