By Idries Shah
Illustrated by Ingrid Rodriguez
Translated by Parween Pazhwak and Hozhaber Shinwary
ISBN: 978-1-944493-57-8 (paperback) $11.90
The story of Share the Lion King and his jungle friends has been entertaining and teaching children for many centuries. It can provide them with a tool with which to overcome irrational fears, so often caused by behavior or events that they as yet may not understand.
Idries Shah’s collections of Eastern oral and written literature have established the Sufi teaching story as an educational instrument. The original version of this story was told by the 13th-century Sufi poet Jalaluddin Rumi.
Selected by the Michigan Department of Education (U.S.) as part of its statewide R.E.A.D.Y. (Read, Educate and Develop Youth) program designed to make sure children have the necessary prereading skills (language, vocabulary, alphabet) by the time they enter school.
“Children enjoy hearing this story many times, amused at what they recognize to be the lion’s lack of objectivity and his unreasonable fear. With each rereading, the lion’s predicament and his reaction to it become more familiar … [which] provides a base on which the child can come to understand egocentricity and irrationality at successive depths later in life.” —Denise Nessel, Ph.D., Senior Consultant with the National Urban Alliance for Effective Education; Library Media Connection: The Professional Magazine for School Library Media Specialists
“This memorable tale, which is known to almost every Afghan, can teach children and adults valuable lessons about fear that unfold gradually, as one is ready for them. … Rodriguez’s illustrations are expansive, jovial, and colorful.” —Multicultural Perspectives: An Official Journal of the National Association for Multicultural Education
“A delightful tale from an oral tradition many centuries old, illustrated with warmth, humor and the detail that children love. A thirsty lion, afraid of his own reflection in a pool of water, overcomes his fear while his jungle friends look on.” —Great Lakes Booksellers Association
“My child has been struggling with anxious feelings at bedtime. After the school assembly [where the story The Lion Who Saw Himself in the Water had been shared], we practiced a calming breathing technique we’d learnt, and then retold The Lion Who Saw Himself in Water together. I was surprised and relieved when he went to sleep easily for the first time in ages.” —Recounted by a mother in Ipswich, UK, to Ezra Hewing, Head of Education at the mental-health charity Suffolk Mind
“Rodriguez’s illustrations are expansive, jovial, and colorful.” —School Library Journal

له پیړیو راپدې خوا تر نن ورځي پوري، د باتور زمري او په ځنګله کې د هغه د ملګرو کیسه ماشومان بوختوي او هغوی ته یو څه ور زده کوي. دا کیسه هغوی ته ورښیي چې څنګه په نامعقولو وېرو او خنډونو باندي برلاسي شي چې په هغه مواردو کې ورسره مخ کیږي چې ښایي تر اوسه ورباندي نه پوهیږي.
د دې کیسې اصلي بڼه د دیار لسمي پیړۍ افغان صوفي شاعر، جلال الدین رومي ویلې ده چې څه د پاسه ۷۰۰ کاله پخوا له نړۍ څخه تللی دی. دا اوسنۍ بڼه په خاصه توګه د افغان لیکوال ادریس شاه لخوا د ماشومانو لپاره وړاندي شوې.
