Storytime with Cynthia Callard: Tenzin’s Deer
Every other Tuesday at the Center for Living Peace, the lovely Cynthia Callard of the Bower’s Museum reads a story in our library area. Sit on our comfy cushions and listen to Cynthia bring stories to life with her great energy and character voices! All of our library books are in line with themes of peace and changing the world for the better.
Next week’s book is Tenzin’s Deer by Barbara Soros, beautifully illustrated by Danuta Mayer.
Barbara Soros draws on the ancient wisdom of the Tibetan people to narrate the touching story of a young boy named Tenzin and the wounded musk deer he encounters in the woods. By paying heed to his dreams and to the needs of the animal he has rescued, Tenzin is able to cure the deer. But soon he discovers that he must learn one of the most important lessons of all: how to love deeply enough to let go. The lush, intricate illustrations evoke the emotional depth of this tale that encourages the Buddhist virtues of nonviolence, compassion and the rejection of materialism.
Find out how the story ends this Tuesday from 3:30pm to 4:30pm at the center! Sign up on our website or drop in to relax and listen to a good story.
Peace Grl Out!
