A new line of children's books offer lessons through characters that represent teachers, students, and fools:
"Zen Tails is a ground-breaking collection of children's picture books based on stories drawn from great philosophical traditions. Each book is beautifully illustrated and contains the original ancient story as well as a moral. The books address fundamental questions which must be faced by each of us as we move through life. These questions are simple enough to be understood by young children, yet profound enough to warrant a lifetime of study, reflection and practice."
