Growing up in the modern world, our children have to cope with an ever-increasing amount of stress, which can have a negative impact on their development. The ancient wisdom of Buddhism, with its emphasis on peace, mindfulness 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. Each one featuring superb, full-page illustrations, the stories will transport your kids into an imaginary world of enlightenment and discovery. Here, they will meet delightful characters and discover an easy-to-understand Buddhist message, which will help them think about how they can apply values such as patience, compassion, honesty and generosity to their own lives.

Designed to be read aloud by parents or by children on their own, these compelling narratives focus the mind and provide a soothing transition into sleep.
