About the Book: 

Float along with the River and giggle with the children who make paper boats. Wave to the animals making their homes along its banks, and greet the morning with Baba who visits each day to sing a beautiful song about the Sun. This gentle and profound story is woven with classical themes of Ayurveda and Vedanta. Through subtle, nature-based analogies, children and adults alike resonate with universal messages about the happiness and health of moderation and the joy and power of recognizing the divine light in our own hearts. Activity pages offer playful explorations of holistic wellbeing of body, mind and soul using ancient wisdom.
