I may not consider myself a monkey, but these tales blew my mind.
After reading the first book, Tales for Your Monkey’s Mind, I did not think there were many concepts left to explore on such a deep level.
Boy was I wrong.
The new tales are every bit as magical and mesmerizing while also hiding that grain of truth that haunts us in today’s world. I truly think that not just parents and children but middle schools should read and discuss the meanings behind them. It’s a conversation worth having.
Imagination, time, anxiety, and belonging are just a few of the concepts explored in this book. Stories about purple hippos and pink bunnies might sound silly on the outside, but those resonated with me the most. That little voice in the back of my head, always putting me down, is a struggle I know well, and the correlated story put a lot in perspective.
So get this book and open your mind to a whole new way of thinking.
Thanks to Steve for sending me over a copy! You can find it on Amazon today.
