Synopsis

My Buddhist Life by Marty Casey, Meg St.Pierre

Using large colour photos and very simple text, this book introduces this major world relgion by describing who the Buddha was, what he taught and how Buddhists live today. It explains why Buddhists chant and what they do when they meditate. It shows how everyone who lives by the Buddha's teaching whether in the famly home or in a monastery, is part of one big family called the Sangha. It also describes how they celebrate their great festival of Wesak. Useful background information is provided in Notes for Teachers, and a simple glossary, index and list of sources of further information contribute to making this an ideal resource for Foundation Stage and KS1. This is a re-issue of MY BUDDHIST LIFE in the EVERYDAY RELIGION series.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
