A Caldecott Honor Book * "An accessible, strikingly illustrated story and a thought-provoking meditation." -- Booklist, starred review* "Every word and image comes to make as perfect a picture book as can be." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review"Readers will fall easily into the rhythm of visits to Stillwater and his storytelling sessions, and many more will fall in love with the panda, whose shape and size offer the children many opportunities for cuddling." -- Publishers Weekly"Beautifully illustrated in two distinct styles, this book introduces readers to a Zen approach to the world, wrapped in a story about three siblings and their new neighbor, a panda....Appealing enough for a group read-aloud, but also begging to be shared and discussed by caregiver and child, Zen Shorts is a notable achievement." -- School Library Journal
