Editorial Reviews

“Engaging and heartfelt!” — Spirituality & Practice

“Compassion arises through developing empathy with the misfortune of others. Without resorting to heavy-handed moralizing, Kerry Lee MacLean manages to embody this profound spiritual truth in a tale that young children—and the parents who read it to them—will find engaging and instructive. Highly recommended.” —Jon Landaw, author of Prince Siddhartha: The Story of Buddha(children’s book) and Buddhism for Dummies

“Kerry Lee MacLean continues to entertain and inform through her delightful stories. Thank you, Moody Cow, for showing us how to cultivate compassion. The courage and heart to do so, especially when facing a bully, is a good lesson for us all–and this book makes it easy for young and old alike to take the same steps.” — Lauren Alderfer, author of Mindful Monkey, Happy Panda
