Grade 2-5-Told as a story, with invented conversations and thoughts, this book includes the sage's prophecy of his future greatness, his athletic prowess as a young man, his father's attempt to hide him from the 'real world' of suffering and death, and his recognition that negation of the body is as wrong a reaction to life as is hedonism. Through fictionalization, Carew-Miller's introduction of central Buddhist precepts through parable makes the heart of the religion intelligible to primary-grade students. Overall, the book introduces Buddha's life and teaching through an involving tale. The full-color illustrations feature details of clothing and jewelry-including nose rings-which give a feeling for the distance of time and culture separating young Americans from the India of 2500 years ago.
