Countless stories have been written about the Buddha, but few have been written for children. Under the Bodhi Tree brings this ageless tale to life for young audiences. Tracing the life of the boy who was born Prince Siddhartha, the author weaves a lyrical biography of a child just like those reading the book – one who wonders at his place in the world, feels compassion for suffering, and wants to help in any way he can. As readers follow Siddhartha all the way to his fateful meditation beneath the branches of the Bodhi Tree, they'll discover the story of how a child who dreams can one day grow up to re-shape the whole world.
For ages 4-8.
