I like this story, but find it just a bit too simple. It says all the right things, but does not really get the message accross some how. I would maybe have liked to see another one or two senarios. I wonder whether someone not being bullied would benefit. There are other things that people/children worry about that could have been included. The illustrations where great.

I must admit I feel a little ripped off, OK a lot!! It does say 40 pages and for children BUT a lot of the oages are just images and the rest barely have any text on them at all.

I do think it is a good idea to try to help children understand this concept but I'm not sure this book is even that clear, it took me 10 minutes to read, I expected a little more for a tenna.

As someone else said, the power of now is less!!

Eckhart Tolle has really succeeded in conveying to children the most important clues for a good attitude towards life which puts the "here and now" as the focus of a child's attention. With this easy-to-understand story of the little boy Milton he makes the insubstantiality of past and future clear to children und makes them realize that these only exist in their heads.

With the aid of the beautifully crafted and expressive artwork children are also visually drawn into the fascination of Milton's story. The story is explained in an empathetic and insightful way which is very suitable for kids showing that their fears - like Milton's fears - are generated by the fact that we are staring through the spectacles of negative experiences from the past at a future that we fear might hold similar negative if not worse experiences for us. As I could see from the reaction of my other half's ten year old nephew, after he had read the book, it becomes clear to a child very quickly that there are no problems in the present moment, i.e. if one puts one's attention on the NOW and what is happening right at this moment there is no problem and the fear disappears.

This book is a must for every parent who has realised that our problems stem from the fact that we judge every event on the basis of our past experiences and tend to expect further problems or solutions for our problems in the future and who wants to show their children the key for living a life free of fear in the liberation of the present moment. Of course, if a parent doesn't know this they can always read Eckhart Tolle's main bestselling book for adults "The Power of Now".

A little boy is terrified by events at school, but learns what he can do to prevent it next time.

The benefits of living in the Now and the problem of thinking too much are learnt through the examples of characters such as an ice-cream lady and even his pet cat.

If you believe that children should know how to experience inner secuirty when facing life’s challenging events, then this book is a good way to find out how.

Beautiful book, written in simple language. However being a teacher of young children I think the illustrations are a bit dull, they need to be colourful and vibrant to attract more children.
