Product description

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.

By snezana kragic nolen 04 Nov 2014 5

This book is a must read for all the parents who are looking to inspire their children to be better human beings. The stories are beautiful, and I am beyond happy, that my child is now excited to do breathing excersises, before reading a story. Our reading routine changed from flopping around in bed, with constant movement, to a very still and attentive listening. She falls a sleep with ease, and she is very excited about bed time reading. I am wholeheartedly recommending this book. It was so beneficial for our child. Beautiful ilustrations, great paper quality.
