Sun in My Belly

On an early morning on a cloudy day, Jenny and her friend Molly play ball in a meadow. Somehow they begin to fight over the ball, and Molly storms off. Both are unhappy in their separate worlds, but Jenny looks up and suddenly feels happy as the sun breaks through. Soon Molly returns and the friends forgive each other, strolling through the meadow to observe nature’s beauty — a beauty that they see in themselves too. Sister Susan’s sensitive text introduces young readers to the Buddhist idea of “Interbeing” — that everything is connected. Sister Rain’s simple, colorful illustrations bring Jenny’s and Molly’s new world to life.
