We face challenging times. Spring is blooming, but we are trying to keep a distance from each other and stay at home. Some of us are scared, some more lonely, but we are not alone. We are seeking to understand the world around us and have peace fill our hearts. To help us through these difficult moments, internationally bestselling author Paulo Coelho has gifted parents and their children two stories to read at home together. A, B, C, D tells the story of a priest who learns a valuable wisdom from a child in his congregation. In The Meaning of Peace, a king calls his people to create a picture that best represents the harmony he feels in his own home.

For decades, the stories told by Coelho have spread throughout every continent and have become part of many cultures. Now, he has shared his wisdom through these two tales that will help restore feelings of goodwill and mindfulness. Available in both English and Spanish languages, these stories speak of empathy, faith, trust and hope. Let’s see the bright side, and keep calm and carry on.
