Buddhism for Kids 40 Activities, Meditations, and Stories for Everyday Calm, Happiness, and Awareness by Emily Griffith Burke

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.  I think that children up to a certain age, could benefit from an adult’s involvement as they go through the book.  An added bonus will be that the adult will benefit too.

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.
