About the Book
"The Uncle Tales: Wisdom Stories for Children of All Ages" is a book written and designed to help parents and children think and talk together about some of Life's more difficult questions like "What will I be when I grow up?", "When did I realize I was ME?", "What is the Soul? Do I have one? Does everyone have one?", "What do I say or do when someone hurts me? Do I have to forgive them? What is forgiveness, anyway?", "Why is math (or science or reading) so difficult?"

These five very short lessons are narrated by an "Uncle" who always seems to have a story for everything. But very often his stories tend to end in a question, rather than an answer.

There is an illustration in vivid color to accompany each of the five stories and engage the reader to consider the content, meaning, and significance of these lessons for him, her, or them. How does this story apply to my life?

Each of the illustrations is also a mandala, intended to point to the universal truth or meaning with in each story.

Additional material in the form of meditations or prayers are included for the reader to reflect on as they think about the content of these five wisdom stories.
