Leaf Talks Peace spreads the Buddha’s message of interconnectedness of all beings through the eyes of a tiny peepal leaf called Harmony, who lives on the Bodhi Tree. Buddha sits under the tree and sees the entire universe breathing happily through this one leaf. He sees in Harmony the Sun, the earth, stars, clouds, rain, time, space, and mind.
Harmony speaks to encourage readers, children and parents alike, to slow down and imagine all that is contained in a single leaf. Each leaf, and each child is connected to all in the fragile earth to learn its wisdom and strive to protect it.
Additional notes are included to help parents and teachers with questions children have as they begin to understand the concepts of Harmony, connection, and the link each of them has to join together as conscious global citizens.
