School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 4-Stillwater sets out to retrieve his umbrella, which had been windswept downhill and deposited in his neighbor's backyard. Thus begins the friendship between a zen-minded giant panda with siblings Michael, Addy, and Karl. During the course of their everyday conversations, Stillwater finds opportunities to share the wisdom of Zen. The lushly illustrated book blends beautifully with David Pittu's warm and gentle narration, that resonates with the wisdom and peace of the stories he tells. It's never too early to introduce poetry to young minds, especially those that subtly instill positive character-building traits. © Copyright 2017.
