5.0 étoiles sur 5 Magical and moving tale for all ages 27 août 2012
Par Ami - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
My family and I read this book together as soon as our copy arrived. Between the four of us- ages 52, 48, 22 and 17- we were all deeply moved and left with wonder by the end. The illustrations and the text complemented each other perfectly, with majesty, profundity and simplicity. Alexis York Lumbard has not only truly grasped the essence of Attar's timeless poem, she has provided parents and teachers a fantastic way of teaching its universal spiritual values to children. Coupled with Demi's breathtaking illustrations, this book is simply a gem for any and all libraries! And it certainly needs to be translated into a variety of languages, as soon as possible.

All the birds in the book spoke to some human weakness in us all, but for my sister and me, our favourite bird was the little finch who started to tremble when a mighty storm was approaching. How often have we felt the finch's doubt and fear in times of chaos and uncertainty? The hoopoe said, "Deep in the darkness of the storm/ Heaven will see you through,/ We all have the strength we need/ Including little you!" What a wonderful rhyme from the wise hoopoe to encourage and comfort children (and all of us!) in times of difficulty.

Both of these women have wonderful gifts to be able to reach into little young hearts and minds-- but they also have the talent of awakening the awe-inspired, golden-hearted child in us all.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Exquisite Work of Art 21 octobre 2012

Alexis York Lumbard is beyond gifted - may God Almighty continue to bless her with the talent, sincerity, humility, and purity of heart so beautifully reflected in her "children's" book, "The Conference of the Birds." I am a middle-aged adult, and was brought to tears of awe when I read her arresting prose coupled with the magnificent illustrations of Demi. I read this classic nearly 20 years ago. I'm fortunate to be taking a course with the legendary Dr. Seyyed Hossein Nasr, who had just discussed it in class earlier this month. He then brought it in to share with the class as soon as he received a copy, and recounted kind remarks about the author who he knew because she was one of his students. I immediately ordered it for my niece and nephews (11,9 and 5) for Eid (along with tickets to the performance in DC), and loved it so much that i just ordered five more, three of which are for gifts for older adults as gifts when I go to their homes for dinner invitations!!! I'm convinced God Almighty sent her work to me to provide inspiration, as I'm in the midst of attempting to create a children's book series based on the "plain talk, yet spiritually enriched" lectures of a local khateeb (person who gives regular spiritual talks) who has resonated with me. I realize I have a long way to go....but now with this publication, I'm more hopeful and directed than ever before.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Timeless Tale in a Beautiful Book 23 janvier 2013
Par M. Murad - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
A common theme in the reviews of this book has been marvel at the book's beauty, from storytelling to illustration, as well as appreciation for its accessibility to all ages, children and adult. Such marvel and appreciation has been my experience as well.

If this book can be summed up in one word, it is "beautiful", if in two, it is "beautiful" and "unique", if in three, it is all that and "rich". It is beautiful in many ways, of them are its its captivating storytelling and its tastefully lavish illustration. It is unique in that seldom, or at least not often enough, does an ancient tradition, in this case the Persian Sufi tradition, and the area of contemporary Western children's storytelling meet, and even more rarely do they produce such wonderful pieces of art as this. That is what this book is, a wonderfully holistic piece of art. This book is also rich in many ways. One of them is in the insight it provides, as perhaps most profoundly done in the foreword. This one page contains more reliable insight to the symbolism of birds in the Persian Sufi tradition than days at a conventional library would likely provide a curious soul with. It helps that the author or publisher asked such a well-versed and authoritative scholar to write it.

In regards to the story itself, there are probably many reasons why such a story lasts about 800 years and going, and continues to be translated for civilizations as foreign and different from its origin's as the modern Western world's. For one, the profound symbolism within it subtly and effectively invites the contemplative reader to examine his or her own life's journey in contexts similar to those of the characters in the story. One finds difficulty flipping through the pages of this book without somehow relating to the scenes portrayed. Reading this story thus proves to be a moving and personal experience, at least to readers that discern between random choices for characters and scenes, on the one hand, and profound symbolism on the other. This story certainly provides the latter. In that way, this book is rich. In its method of storytelling, both verbal and visual, it is beautiful. In its rare combination of things and in its holistic approach to providing a story, it is unique.

I wish for the world's children, and adults, more well-told stories and holistically produced books like this. Many thanks to the author, illustrator, and all those who have brought this gem of a story to the Western world. The divine orchestration that has lead and fueled their efforts has produced a wonderful book for all ages.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent book for kids 2 août 2013
Par amel zahid - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I often wonder how difficult it would be to raise kids in this day and age that is increasingly becoming so attached to "things" and consumerism.This book provides the answer. A beautiful read and great simplification of the original poem "Simorgh". It summarizes the main themes nicely while brining out the spiritual significance of what we could achieve if we are not lazy, selfish, unkind and so on. The pictures are truly remarkable and it is a joy to hold in the hand or simply flip the pages to look at. I ordered several of these for my friends' kids and think this makes a wonderful read for anyone coming from any tradition! A must have for every kid!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Every child needs to hear this book 25 août 2012
Par Daniel Mills - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Every child needs to hear this book read by a parent or a parental figure who can then talk about the ideas and questions the wonderful content and images will generate for the child. This book presents a special opportunity for the child and parent to interact about meaningful content. This is one of those books that will be read and re-read by children and parents. Its messages will guide for decades.
