"The Buddha was a wonderful teacher who was born long ago. He helped people learn how to find peace within themselves and kinder to one another. The Buddha told stories about the lifetimes when he was born as animals before he became a human being. These are called Jataka Tales or "birth stories." Whether he was born as a buffalo, as a monkey, as a lion or as a wild dog, he demonstrated how to selflessly help others and take to heart the importance of karma. These classic fables communicate the core teachings of the Buddha in a relatable way for children. In each of the stories Laura has chosen, trees play an important role. Laura invites parents and children to rest in the shade of these stories and delight in their teachings!"-- Provided by publisher.
