Here is the first book in an exciting new four-book series for younger readers featuring the beloved Zen panda, Stillwater -- star of the Caldecott Honor Book and New York Times bestseller, Zen Shorts, and of the Peabody Award and Emmy Award-winning Apple+ TV series.
âToday feels full of opportunities,â said Stillwater. "What would you like to do?â âSomething important!" said his nephew, Koo. "Let us save the world!â But that's such a big job. The world is so big. And Koo is just a small panda. During the course of the day, Koo straightens his room, feeds his cat and the hungry fish outside, and he bakes a cake to welcome new neighbors. He even helps a family of ducklings to safely cross a street. But still, Koo wonders, how will HE ever save the world? At the end of the day, Uncle Stillwater has the answer: "You did so many things today that made the world a better place. And each time you do the right thing--you save the world a little bit." In a story brimming with love and light, Jon J Muth shows how we can all heal the world a little bit at a time -- just the right message for now--and always!
