“Chasing pigeons was Ziji’s favourite thing”—Book review of Ziji: The Puppy Who Learned to Meditate
Review by Sarah Mist

Book: Ziji: The Puppy Who Learned to Meditate 
Author: Torey Hayden and Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche
Illustrator: Charity Larrison
Publisher: Wisdom Publications
For readers aged: 4 years and up (but perhaps ideal for six- to eight-year olds)

Ziji is an active little puppy that is taught meditation from his new next-door neighbour in the park below their apartments.

Simple and clear meditation instructions for kids (and adults) framed around a sweet story about a puppy and family. The story has an ordinary, familiar quality that makes it all easy to relate to. My active seven-year-old son likes this book and I think it helped him to appreciate meditation in a wider context. The meditating puppy is a lovely analogy for young children.

★★★★ 4 stars from my seven-year-old son
