Room in Your Heart

$ 19.95

This delightful, and insightful, tale is told by one of Bhutan's leading writers, Kunzang Choden. "Neypo shong gna? Is there room for me?" a wandering monk asks the little old lady who lives on the hill. The question is repeated again and again as more and more visitors come by.

The kind lady welcomes them in, one by one. And the story ends with the teaching: “There will always be room in your home, as long as there is room in your heart.” Along with Aunty Mouse, this charming picture book makes perfect bedtime reading for youngsters, and is beautifully illustrated with evocative watercolors of the Bhutanese landscapes and people by Pema Tshering

Lovely folktale

Room in Your Heart is a beautiful story of a woman who, despite having so little herself, welcomes those in need who appear at her door. Wonderful way to teach children about generosity, and that “there will always be room in your home, as long as there is room in your heart.” See more here: http://bit.ly/2KdkG3S

A Charming Tale

The beautiful illustrations perfectly compliment this tale of kindness originating from Bhutan. Additional fun facts about the country are printed in the back including a note informing readers that until recently there were no hotels in Bhutan and travelers could ask to stay in anyone’s house giving inspiration to this story. There can never be enough books demonstrating kindness and children are sure to enjoy this charming offering. See more here: http://bit.ly/2JVjvWI
