What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

For the first time ever, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate His Holiness the Dalai Lama addresses children directly, sharing lessons of peace and compassion, told through stories of his own childhood.

One of today’s most inspiring world leaders was once an ordinary child named Lhamo Thondup. In a small village in Tibet, his mother was his first great teacher of compassion. In everyday moments from his childhood, young readers begin to see that important lessons are all around us, and that they, too, can grow to truly understand them.

With simple, powerful text, the Dalai Lama shares the universalist teachings of treating one another with compassion, which Bao Luu illustrates beautifully in vibrant color. In an increasingly confusing world, The Seed of Compassion offers guidance and encouragement on how we all might bring more kindness to it.

5.5 / 7.0

I love books that introduce my kids to worth heroes, and I especially love books that actually delve into those heroes’ deeds and beliefs in ways that are accessible to young children. This book does both of those things, and, even better, it was written by the Dalai Lama himself! It’s well done, and a great blend of learning about the world and learning and thinking about how we should treat others.
