Flow, Flow, Flow

Illustrated by Ivette Salom

Join a group of adventurous children on their ever-changing journey across the sea in this delightfully illustrated book that playfully teaches impermanence, change, and acceptance.

Enjoy things with pleasure and do let them go,
And grow into life—let it flow, flow, flow, flow.


Four children set off on a magical voyage of imagination. Along the way, to no destination in particular, they meet walrus ice cream vendors, lemurs and tigers living in harmony, helpful octopi and more. As the scenery changes, our travelers learn to go with the flow, welcoming each new experience for what it is in the moment, and accepting when those experiences drift away, to be replaced with a whole new adventure. 

Children (and adults) will get lost in the detailed and whimsical illustrations, discovering something new each time they read this book. As the characters experience constantly changing settings, readers will begin to better understand the impermanence of life, and how wondrous it can be.
