I have definitely stashed one of these for Mia! Excited much? Excited lots! This is the first Buddha at Bedtime book in a series. I sat and read some of the stories last night and they are lovely!
Many of today’s children face challenges and obstacles far beyond what their parents ever imagined.
These 20 thoroughly modern retellings of ancient Buddhist tales give parents a fun, low-pressure way to impart wisdom and moral guidance without preaching. Each story highlights a moral or ethical dilemma that echoes those that children face in their own lives, providing insight and enlightenment that they can use to defuse trying situations. At the conclusion of each story, applicable Buddhist principles are discussed.
Featuring engaging characters, enthralling adventures, and modern language that speaks to today’s kids, these beautifully illustrated stories can help children relieve stress, attain greater academic and social achievement, and enjoy a more positive outlook on life.
If you're the kind of person who is on the hunt for alternative books to read with your children, then you're gonna love Nanny & Mia's Bookclub - it's all about spending time with your child and watching them be inspired by all things creative and joyful.
