Sarah Conover's collection of traditional Buddhist tales and sayings leads us to the kind of implicit understanding of ourselves and others that only stories can provide. Following the Buddha through his various transformations, these clarified, often humorous narrative journeys open the ancient masters profound and gentle teachings to persons of all ages, religions, races, and ideological persuasions. Over and over this marvelous book tells us, "let go of your anger, your fear, your greedy desire. Embrace gladness. Follow the path." And the stories themselves, simply as stories, form a wondrous pageant: of elephants, monkeys, monks, and men working through foolishness toward wisdom and delight.

Sarah Conover is the author of Kindness: a Treasury of Buddhist Wisdom for Children and Parents and the co-author of Ayat Jamilah, Beautiful Signs: a Treasury of Islamic Wisdom for Children and Parents and Harmony: Chinese Wisdom for Children and Parents, all published by Skinner House Books.
