Junah Tales: Secret of the Garden: Fables for a Healthy Happy Life (Volume 1) by M. R. Neer

Junah Tales offers animal stories like Aesop did but now with life lessons that are modern, universal, and wellness-oriented. Like other classic fables, each fable is a story within a larger story — in this case of Junah’s heroic quest to find the secret of the garden. The fables are written for 5th grade (age 10) and up, although younger kids may enjoy having the fables read to them.

These stories are a great way to teach natural, holistic values to children. The detailed illustrations will help them imagine what’s happening in the garden. Insights from these fables will also help all of us re-connect to nature and enjoy life in a healthier and happier way.
