Funny name. Serious teachings. The Zen Pig has a happy life because he stops to notice the small things and appreciates what he already has.
In a culture focused on achieving and obtaining more and more, this children’s book speaks that love is where we find our wealth. Written by local author, Mark Brown, and illustrated by his wife, Amy Lynn Brown, this little gem is a big reminder to care for others, forgive yourself and live in the moment. It was inspired by the couple’s mission to teach their son what truly matters in life.
Children will love the simple yet stunning drawings and parents will love imparting these values over and over with each bedtime reading.
To make it even sweeter, the author and illustrator duo have a passion for filling the cups of the millions of people who cannot access clean water. With every copy of Zen Pig that is purchased, enough proceeds are created to provide 10 people with clean water for ONE YEAR! What’s not to love?
You can purchase your copy here. Which is also where you’ll find a free downloadable coloring book. Also for sale are the artful prints from the book which serve, you guessed it, to provide clean water for even more people.
Lucky for us, this looks to be just the first of a series to come.
