A wonderful book about teaching patience and sharing and how an act of kindness can make a world of a difference.

This is about a panda who lives next door. He plays with the children and teaches them valuable mindsets which will help then in the future. Patience on learning a new skill will be the best way to succeed, and loving rather than fighting is a better way to play. They play play and play.

Beautiful picture book that can be read to children to teach about sharing, compassion, and hard work.

Have you ever seen a panda do ballet? How about a panda playing with giant toy robots? If not, the I recommend reading Zen Socks. This was a great book with two important life lessons: 1) to be great at anything take patience and practice; 2) sometimes bad guys don't think they're being bad. Not everything is as black and white as good guys versus bad guys. I love every aspect of this book from the illustrations to the subtle life lessons. Jon J Muth has a great ability to adapt and incorporate old 'zen' tales in to stories children can grasp. ( )
