Moody Cow Learns Compassion

moody cowMoody Cow is called a wimp because he gets upset when his friend feeds a live cricket to a snake. After he has a nightmare about the incident, his grandfather helps him see his experience of empathy with the cricket as a good thing. They purchase a bag of crickets, take them to a place where there is food and water, and release them with the words: "May you be happy." Then they close the day with one more act of liberation that results in feelings of joy and fulfillment for all.

This is a top-drawer children's book by Kerry Lee MacLean on the important spiritual practice of compassion.
