From Meshel: Is Nothing Something? Ok, so you know by now I’m a massive fan of Thich Nhat Hanh. His ability to communicate Buddha’s teachings with people of all ages and backgrounds is just magical, and he has a particularly special way with children.
In this book he gives us all some inspiration in how to answer those incredibly tricky questions only kids can dream up.
The official blurb: “In Is Nothing Something?”, Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh answers heartfelt, difficult, and funny questions from children of all ages. Illustrated with original full-color artwork by Jessica McClure, Is Nothing Something? will help adults plant the seeds of mindfulness in the young children in their lives. Beginning with the most basic questions, “What is important in life?” and “Why is my brother mean to me?” and progressing through issues that we all wrestle with, such as “How do I know if I really love somebody?”, “How long am I going to live?”, and “What does God look like?”, each page presents a question with a short answer from Thich Nhat Hanh, appropriate for beginning readers to work with on their own. The back of the book has the first complete children’s biography of Thich Nhat Hanh, along with basic, kid-friendly instructions for mindful breathing and mindful walking. Both humorous and profound, Is Nothing Something? is the perfect resource for kids with questions, adults looking to answer them, and anyone with questions of their own.”
