Your child is sure to be delighted by this new collection of magical tales inspired by the teachings of the Buddha. Each story is based on ancient Buddhist folktales beloved by children for generations and will help your child to develop their knowledge and understanding as they learn to become the ‘Buddha’s apprentice’. Characters and situations that are both funny and compelling will draw your child into stories that explore important Buddhist themes – such as behaving with compassion or managing negative thoughts. From a brave monkey queen who teaches a king how to be a better ruler to a rude boar who needs to learn some manners, these stories will enchant every child.
