book recommendation

The Tao of Pooh
by Benjamin Hoff

"What's this you're writing?" asked Pooh, climbing onto the writing table.
     "The Tao of Pooh," I replied.
     "The how of Pooh?" asked Pooh, smudging one of the words I had just written.
     "The Tao of Pooh," I replied, poking his paw away with my pencil.
     "It seems more like the ow! of Pooh," said Pooh, rubbing his paw.
     "Well, it's not," I replied huffily.
     "What's it about?" asked Pooh, leaning forward and smearing another word.
     "It's about how to stay happy and calm under all circumstances!" I yelled.
     "Have you read it?" asked Pooh.

This is a book that I read every few years. I seem to be needing to read it more often.
