Leo and Molly love their new neighborhood. Best of all is their friend Stillwater, a giant panda who lives across the way! And the three friends are quite a team! Stillwater teaches Molly about patience. Leo teaches Stillwater about sharing. And Molly shows how one act of kindness can make a world of difference.

Jon J Muth's warm, compassionate stories and light-filled pictures are tinged with the wisdom of Zen. Whether young or old, we all learn from one another in the most surprising ways . . .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stillwater is Back! Stillwater is back in another beautifully told and illustrated story from Jon J. Muth. I love Muth's illustrations, they have the perfect degree of reality combined with a delectable a splash of the surreal for good measure. In this sweet story, Stillwater, Molly and Leo learn about patience, compassion, sharing, and kindness. Each of the Zen books contains a simple, positive, and affirming message. Stillwater is completely lovable, he is certain to delight children of all ages (and adults). The Zen books are quiet and gentle, perfect stories for quiet afternoons, before bed, or sleepy mornings. Beautiful book. I highly recommend all of the Zen books.#plumreview
