Kids' Questions and Zen Answers About Life, Death, Family, Friendship, and Everything in Between

In Is Nothing Something? Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh answers heartfelt, difficult, and funny questions from children. Illustrated in full-color by Jessica McClure, Is Nothing Something? will help adults plant the seeds of mindfulness in the young children in their lives. Beginning with the most basic questions, “What is important in life?” and “Why is my brother mean to me?” and progressing through issues that we all wrestle with, such as “How do I know if I really love somebody?” and “What does God look like?”, each page presents a question with a short answer from Thich Nhat Hanh, appropriate for beginning readers to work with on their own. The book includes the first complete children’s biography of Thich Nhat Hanh, along with basic, kid-friendly instructions for mindful breathing and mindful walking. Both humorous and profound, Is Nothing Something? is the perfect resource for kids with questions, adults looking to answer them, and anyone with questions of their own. This ebook includes an excerpt from Answers from the Heart: Practical Responses to Life's Burning Questions (ISBN: 978-1-888375-82-4, eISBN: 978-1-935209-00-3) a compilation of questions posed to Thich Nhat Hanh by students of all ages and his often surprising answers.
