Get Mindful with a Good Book!
The best of children’s literature offers deep insight. In Penguin Problems, we meet a little penguin whose life is frustrating in so many ways because he is a penguin. And it offers us a chance to think and reflect: how much of what “frustrates” us or “irritates” us in life is really just the normal details of being human? Can we shift our perspective and just enjoy the world we have?
This is a great, easy, fun read (my kids LOVE it!) with as much mindfulness wisdom as some of the best meditation texts. I recommend it as part of your meditation reflection even if you don’t have kids!
