An enchanting intergenerational children's story and picture book, enhanced by Seng Soun Ratanavanh's gorgeous Japanese-inspired illustrations.
Miyuki's curiosity is piqued by her grandfather's morning meditation routine, and she is eager to learn this new skill. Her wise and patient grandfather first takes her on a walk in the garden. "When do we start to meditate?" she asks repeatedly. Grandfather enjoys the warm sun and stops to smell a rose, inviting Miyuki to join him.
Their walk in the garden, filled with many tender moments, heightens their gratitude for each other and for the world around them. Miyuki comes to understand, as will young readers, that meditation takes the form of small acts of mindfulness throughout her day.
