    This is a lovely introduction to Buddhism for kids and a great resource for young children of any faith. Stories and activities are separated into three sections -- morning, day and evening -- to teach principles of kindness to others, the world, and themselves. The stories are short and helpful, and the activities are diverse and creative. It's also quite affordably priced and the art is colorful and appealing as well. All around a great resource, highly recommended. I received a review copy from This is a lovely introduction to Buddhism for kids and a great resource for young children of any faith.

    "May you be happy. May you be free from pain. May you be peaceful." Cultivating calm in us and the children are so important. 'Buddhism for Kids' is geared towards caregivers and children so that they may find peace and joy on their path, no matter what path that may be. (You don't have to practice Buddhism or be a Buddhist to read this or try the exercises.) If we can teach children to cultivate peace and calm, they have a better chance of being successful in life, the same is true for us. If chi "May you be happy. May you be free from pain.

'Buddhism for Kids' is geared towards caregivers and children so that they may find peace and joy on their path, no matter what path that may be. (You don't have to practice Buddhism or be a Buddhist to read this or try the exercises.) If we can teach children to cultivate peace and calm, they have a better chance of being successful in life, the same is true for us. If children's books can help your children, they can help you too. This children's book shares stories, meditations, and activities for each part of the day: morning, day, and night. I liked how these were broken up into sections because energizing yourself for the day and calming yourself before sleep are two different types of energy you wouldn't want to mix up! My favorite story was 'The Buddha and The Blind'. It taught "There is no one right way to look at something. Every perspective is one piece of the whole truth." The picture that went with this was really great too. The illustrations were extremely well done. At the end of each story are messages from the Dharma (Buddhist Teachings) that you were to obtain from reading the tale. These extras were exceptionally helpful. "Do not look only at the teachings, but to where they point you." The Intention Bench is an idea from the book that we utilize in our home. As soon as we get home we let all the stresses of the day go while taking off our shoes and discussing our day, once we get up from the bench it's onto the present moment. That way we aren't complaining all day or at inappropriate times. We set time aside each day. This was colorful, beautiful, and taught numerous messages from the Dharma. This material was simplified, easy to understand, enlightening to my spirit and brought joy to my heart. The resource section at the end was a great addition. "Creative solutions are always available in times of need." 4.5 stars I received an ARC from the publisher. The quotes I selected may not reflect the final publication as the author may have made changes prior. All reviews by me are honest and voluntary.

    This book is a stellar introduction to Buddhist concepts for children. I enjoyed this so much that I immediately contacted a couple friends who are religious education leaders for Unitarian Universalist Congregations, as it is an excellent book for families and groups alike! The illustrations are absolutely adorable. The book is divided into Morning, Day, and Night sections, which is a fun kid-friendly way to organize them.

The illustrations are absolutely adorable. The book is divided into Morning, Day, and Night sections, which is a fun kid-friendly way to organize them. The heartwarming stories are mostly from the Jataka tales, with a couple Zen tales in as well. I appreciate that some traditionally male characters in the tales have been made female, without obscuring the story. Exercises and meditations include "duck duck dukkha", group mandala drawing, metta (lovingkindness meditations), make your own mantra, bedtime prayers for peace, a butterfly meditation, a "follow the leader" fun walking meditation, and more. If you belong to another religious or spiritual tradition, or if your family is athiest, this book does not interfere. It would be a lovely introduction for families to teach other traditions to their kids. It is an ethical, sweet book, without religious dogma. I've been following books on buddhism for awhile, and it's the first I've seen of its kind. I hope that Ms. Burke offers a sequel! Thank you to Callisto publishing for the review copy.

    Thank you Callisto Publisher's Club and Rockridge Press for this free ARC! The following review contains my honest opinions. This book is organized into three chapters: Morning, Day, and Night. I liked this organizational trait, but I would like for the contents of those chapters to be organized further by grouping each activity: all meditations together, all games/projects together, and all stories together within each chapter.

This book is organized into three chapters: Morning, Day, and Night. I liked this organizational trait, but I would like for the contents of those chapters to be organized further by grouping each activity: all meditations together, all games/projects together, and all stories together within each chapter. I feel that by grouping these activities in this manner, this book becomes a resource that is quicker and easier to use. My favorite part of this book has been the stories included. I particularly appreciated that the author included a note about the origin of the story. This book also includes a good resource list that provides some music options which could take the games and meditations one step further.

    This title is aptly divided to follow a child over the course of the day with sections title, Morning,  Day and Night.  Included are 40 mindfulness activities scattered over the time in a typical day.  There are stories, meditations to practice and play scenarios throughout the book.  I liked the way that the author spoke directly to his audience, beginning the book with the story of Buddha and an explanation fo dharma. The stories in this book are well told and the exercises are easy to follow.  This title is aptly divided to follow a child over the course of the day with sections title, Morning,  Day and Night.  Included are 40 mindfulness activities scattered over the time in a typical day.  There are stories, meditations to practice and play scenarios throughout the book.  I liked the way that the author spoke directly to his audience, beginning the book with the story of Buddha and an explanation fo dharma.

This book appears to be an excellent resource.  The illustration enhance the text and are gentle and appealing. Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title.  I plan to buy the hard copy.

    A big thank you to NetGalley and Callisto Media/Rockridge Press for the ARC. I am voluntarily reviewing this book. This is a children's book. I am not a Buddhist, so I was expecting something more basic. I found this to be disjointed. I didn't get the Buddhism connection. It just seemed like stories mixed with yoga. Interesting but not what I expected. 3 stars A big thank you to NetGalley and Callisto Media/Rockridge Press for the ARC. I am voluntarily reviewing this book. This is a children's book.
