"This is a compilation of short stories written for a wide audience. They are simple stories but each one illustrates a lesson or proverb which encourages the reader to think about life. I found the stories to be very interesting and some to be quite thought provoking. They are suitable for all readers which allow them to be something a family could read together. I would recommend reading them."

What Readers Around the web say about the book:

"Very simple stories and very clear. Taken to heart and understood they can lead one on an inner journey of the soul."

"Wow. Some of these stories are a bit banal, but others made me think. The moral is clear at the end of each story, but it doesn't feel preachy. It feels eye-opening. Some of these I want to print out some day and frame merely because they're clever and true and helpful."

"Being a mother of two vibrant young children I was inspired by the stories presented in Stories for parents, children and grandchildren. In particular Yogi Raman’s statement regarding seeing a target to reach it or Abbot Lucas’s advice to his brethren regarding making no demands on others had a profound effect on me. The thoughts of rebuild humanity, rebuild the world subtly expressed touched my heart."

About Paulo Coelho

Paulo Coelho was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He attended a Jesuit school. As a teenager, Coelho wanted to become a writer. Upon telling his mother this, she responded with "My dear, your father is an engineer. He's a logical, reasonable man with a very clear vision of the world. Do you actually know what it means to be a writer?" After researching, Coelho concluded that a writer "always wears glasses and never combs his hair" and has a "duty and an obligation never to be understood by his own generation," amongst other things. At 16, Coelho's introversion and opposition to following a traditional path led to his parents committing him to a mental institution from which he escaped three times before being released at the age of 20. Coelho later remarked that "It wasn't that they wanted to hurt me, but they didn't know what to do... They did not do that to destroy me, they did that to save me."

Since the publication of The Alchemist, Coelho has generally written one novel every two years including By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept, The Fifth Mountain, Veronika Decides to Die, The Devil and Miss Prym, Eleven Minutes.
