    1 thought on “Kindness: A Treasury of Buddhist Wisdom for Children and Parents”

    1. This is one that’s easier to read in pieces, since it has many short stories/fables, and if I tried to get through too many in one sitting, I would lose focus. But I enjoyed the book and many of the stories. My favorite, or at least the most memorable for me, was the one of the monk who carried his thoughts with him for too long.

    2. This was a book I found hard to put down. I loved the stories and after reading took time to ponder what I had just read. The sayings were great I went through the book twice just to read and reread them. They were a bit long for my daughter but she loved the illustrations.

    3. Summarize the bookThis sweet book is about 150 pages long and primarily comprised of "Stories and Sayings" -largely fables- from the Buddhist traditions. In the author's "note to young readers", she also gives a brief overview of the Buddha's (Siddhartha Gautama) life. In the preface the author writes, "This anthology is a read-aloud book. In compiling these stories and sayings I hope to reach several different audiencesFinally, this anthology is intended to be a resource for the educator trying [...]

    4. For Grade 2 main lesson block - Jataka Tales, asian fables and overview of world religions throughout year. Will follow the waldorf 3 day outline for: The quarellsome quails, joyful the ox, the dung beetle and the monkey king. (will work one or more into our Math Block (monkey, mango math)

    5. My son and I really enjoyed reading this treasury of Buddhist tales. A good bedtime book with morals, although some may be difficult for children to interpret.

    6. filled with short quotes and thoughts that are taken from the buddhist philosophy, and can be applied to everyday life. many of the stories had a fairy tale quality.

    7. One of my favorite books! I have bought this book literally 5 or 6 times and each time it gets given away. It's that good.

    8. Highly recommend this book for parents and children. My oldest son (almost 6) and I pick up this book from time to time and randomly choose stories to read. We have both really enjoyed it.

    9. A delightful collection of tales from various Buddhist traditions written to be read aloud to children. Very well done.

    10. It's worth a quick read for the one or two stories that'll stick with you, but it's not going to win any awards for the best storybook of all time.
