This book is amazing! The Three Questions is a good read for a person of any age, it provides a deep message while telling a story of a boy who wants to know "When is the best time to do things?" "Who is the most important?" and "What is the right thing to?"... such a sweet conclusion!

A book of great wisdom for children AND adults. This book follows a boy through his journey as he tries to figure out the answer to his three questions: When is the best time to do things? Who is the most important one? What is the right thing to do? the answer is one delivered in simple and easy to remember, almost zen-like answer by the master . . . an old wise turtle.

The most important questions can have as many answers as there are people, so one must ultimately look within oneself for the answer.

Lovely philosophical book for the young with beautiful illustrations. I loved that the animal characters were named after Russian authors.
