Description of the Book from Amazon
Follow Buddha on a wild journey--
from mountain peaks
to the ocean deep,
past Saturn’s rings
and butterfly wings.
This sweet story reveals that Buddha can be found everywhere you go.
The publisher was kind enough to provide me with a copy of this book to review. All opinions are my own and honest.
This book is amazing! As a Buddhist I often find it hard to find simple, Buddhist books for children. This is one I will definitely be adding to my collection when it comes out in print. The pictures are beautiful, yet simple and the message is lovely. The writing is simple enough for early readers to be able to read along with you. The pictures add so much colour to the story, I loved just looking at the pictures. My only issue, which is a small one, is the farm scene. Buddhism is about compassion for ALL beings, not just humans and therefore I am vegan. The farm scene shows the fairy tale version of what a farm is and I feel that it is an injustice to the animals that are murdered for others enjoyment. That might be a little harsh but compassion for all is truly meant for all. When I read this story to my daughter that won't be a farm, it will be an animal sanctuary. Buddha definitely would be in the cozy house of an animal sanctuary. Other than that I absolutely LOVE this book, the colours are truly captivating, the story loving and warm. It is a definite must have for all Buddhist families.
