Growing up in the modern world, our children have to cope with
ever-increasing amounts of stress, which can hinder their
development. The ancient wisdom of Buddhism, with its emphasis on
peace, love and compassion, is the ideal basis for helping any
child to face these challenges with inner confidence and calm.
Building on the age-old art of storytelling, this beautiful book
re-tells 20 ancient Buddhist tales in a way that is thoroughly fun
and accessible to children. Featuring superb, full-page
illustrations, the stories will transport kids into an imaginary
world of enlightenment and discovery where they will meet
delightful characters and discover an easy-to-understand Buddhist
message - one that will help them think about how they can apply
values such as patience, perseverance, honesty and generosity to
their own lives. Designed to be read aloud by a parent or read by
older children on their own, these compelling narratives provide a
pleasurable, soothing transition into sleep.
