The Mountains of Tibet by Mordicai Gerstein is a beautiful story of life and birth. A woodcutter passes away, then he is left with a choice. “You know you have a choice. You may become part of the endless universe some call heaven, or you may live another life.” The woodcutter searches the planets, stars, earth, etc. looking for parents and a new life. Beautiful mandala like watercolors illustrate this book on reincarnation. Even if you do not believe in Buddhist thoughts on the after life, this is a wonderful book about the numerous possibilities for life. The Mountains of Tibet is also helpful to read when a child has lost a loved one. We often talk about our dog’s next life, and it brings us comfort to know our paths may cross again. We have always told our children that they chose us to be their parents, and I believe that. Our children have come to us so that they may teach us, and so that we may teach them about love and compassion.
