Absolutely adorable. A fantastic book book with Zen tales for children. Stillwater tells tales that are simple yet still thought provoking.The first tale is of Stillwater's uncle who likes to give gifts to the people he loves for his own birthday. He is so giving that one day a robber comes to his house while Stillwater's uncle is home. The uncle welcomes the robber and because he does not like to let anyone leave empty handed he takes his only possession, the rob he is wearing, and gives it to the robber who leaves uncomfortable by the uncle's generosity. Little tales such as these are good for young children. While the audiobook was delightful to listen to having the illustrated book would be best. The illustrations are very cute.
