Growing up in today’s world, our children have to cope with an ever-increasing amount of stress, which can feel worrying to both them and us.
This book aims to help children face these challenges with inner confidence and calm. Building on the age-old art of storytelling, this beautiful book retells 18 ancient Buddhist tales in a way that is thoroughly fun and accessible to children.
The stories will transport your children into imaginary worlds of enlightenment and discovery, using delightful characters and easy-to-understand Buddhist messages, to empower them to think about how they can apply values such as patience, honesty, authenticity and generosity in their own lives.
Designed either to be read aloud by parents to their 4 to 8 year olds, or to be read by the older age range on their own, these compelling narratives help to focus and calm the mind, providing a soothing transition into sleep.
Included at the end of the book is a selection of gentle meditations that can be used at any time to help enhance a sense of peace and contentment.
