Children & spirituality

A few months ago, I asked (on an unschooling e-mail list) for suggestions on childrens books (mainly non fiction and written for children) about spirituality, postive affirmations, meditations, personal development, etc. Although we haven't read all of them yet, here is the list, along with comments from the members.
If you know of any others that we might like, please let us know by adding a comment. Thanks!

"The Rough-Faced Girl" by ?-a Native American Cinderella
"The Hundred Dresses"--Eleanor Estes-compassion, misunderstandings, assumptions
Circle Round" by Starhawk. It has stories and activities based around the seasons and loving the earth.
The Paper Bag Princess"--wonderful for girls
The Tiger of Turkestan by Hogrogian.
Moonbeam: A Book of Meditations for Children
A Pebble for your pocket
All I see Is part of me
Each Breath a Smile
Kindness: A treasury of Buddist wisdom
The Fall of Freddie the Leaf, by Leo Buscaglia
Wayne Dyer has a new children's book: Incredible You! 10 Ways to Be Happy Inside and Out
Old Turtle* by Douglas Wood
Nurturing Spirituality in Children by Peggy J. Jenkins has some fun experiments that bring to life the ideas of spirituality.
One of my favorite writers is Sonia Choquette, she wrote *The WiseChild* A Spiritual Guide to Nurturing Your Child's Intuition. As well as many others, my favorite is *Your Heart's Desire*
