Buddha at Bedtime: Tales of Love and Wisdom for You to Read with Your Child to Enchant, Enlighten and InspireBy
Retold by Dharmachari Nagaraja
The byline of this book describes this wonderful bedtime storybook perfectly – Tales of Love and Wisdom for You to Read with Your Child to Enchant, Enlighten and Inspire. Retold by Dharmachari Nagaraja, these 20 modern versions of classic Buddhist stories are fun, intriguing and teach profound lessons without ever seeming “preachy”.
Buddah at Bedtime is also a beautiful looking book. It is illustrated throughout with some of the most lovely, multicultural images that bring the stories alive and don’t seem to limit them to any one tradition but could easily charm readers from any culture in the world.
Best of all – the stories delight. Animals talk. Families travel to exciting celebrations. A rich miser learns the real value of friendship and four sisters discover the value of sharing their ideas and wisdom, instead of seeing things from only one perspective. This is a story book that the adults in your family will enjoy at least as much as the younger listeners – perhaps even more!
