This is a great story about a young prince and his journey to self-awareness, thus his instant peace and happiness. It's inspiring, and very encouraging for those who already, have nothing to loose.

This is the most beautifully illustrated book for children that tells the story of buddha. My son loved me to read this book over and over again!

Very well done.
Addl. reading from Story of the World on Buddha. B. really enjoyed this - right on target for her age and interest.
Full of information except in an interesting story. I've read this book 3 times.
Children's book about the origin of Buddha. I read it out of curiosity.
