Book Information

Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers October 2018
Character-Building Curriculum

In a gorgeous and contemplative new picture book, legendary author-illustrator Tomie dePaola reminds us that mindfulness—being quiet, still, and present with one another—is a very special thing.

Everything is in such a hurry, busy as busy can be. The birds are flying so fast, the dragonfly is zooming over the water—even the trees are waving their leaves.

So what if we sit here, you next to me…and we can just be?--from the publisher

"Tomie is a spiritual person, devoted to introspection and meditation; he even has a special meditation corner in his home. This book, an effort to share that search for inner peace with his young readers, is a passion project for him."
