Miyuki is full of energy and curiosity when she finds her grandfather meditating in a Lotus blossom. She begs him to teach her to meditate, too, but the patient old man takes her for a walk in the garden instead. The book’s signature, fanciful Japanese-inspired illustrations are full of bright origami paper patterns and whimsical, oversized flowers as the girl and her grandfather explore, observe, and reflect on the natural beauty all around them, perhaps learning about meditation after all.
