Hi, my name is Micki Fine and I am so pleased to introduce you to our new children’s picture book which I wrote and my husband, John Pavlicek, illustrated. If you are so inclined; I encourage you to learn more about me on this website.
We’re happy to announce that May All People and Pigs Be Happy is ready for pre-order on Barnes and Noble, IndieBound, Amazon, and Penguin Random House. It will be released on 10/29/19. We hope that you love the book as much as we do. Enjoy it by yourself or with a beloved child.
May All People and Pigs Be Happy is a children’s picture book that offers a gentle, engaging story and actual instruction in loving-kindness meditation. It's intended to help children access their innate kindness and empathy. This book is written in an accessible, secular way so as to include parents, educators and children with or without a background in loving-kindness meditation or mindfulness. May All People and Pigs Be Happy provides a valuable resource for all parents, educators, school counselors and psychotherapists who want to share the benefits of loving-kindness with the children they love.
May All People and Pigs Be Happy follows seven-year-old Claire and her stuffed pig, Pigalina, through a series of every-day encounters through which Pigalina teaches Claire loving-kindness meditation. Claire learns some simple phrases that help her to feel kinder toward herself and others. First, Claire learns to wish herself well: May I be safe. May I be happy. May I feel love. With each new encounter, Pigalina helps Claire expand her kindness: to May YOU be safe. May WE be safe, and finally, to May ALL people and pigs be safe.
May there be love all around the world.
