Yes, it's my favorite one. I find the storyline to be inspiring
Message about valuing unmaterial things in this life
I truly do enjoy the cultural message in these Petra books. This one, Petra on the Path of Budha is my favorite one. Storyline is funny and easy to read (follow), but still there is a nice and educational message – about respecting your parents and about valuing unmaterial things. I do find books that teach children about different cultures and that supports their eagerness to explore to be really inspiring. and this truly one of those books.
Great reading especially to kids who would like to learn more about countries, animals and cultures around the world. Nowadays, kids do not read enough so maybe by using audio book they can concentrate to the great story!
Like Petra, I too, dislike the winter and spring and love the summer. This made me for a moment feel like it's almost summer when in reality even spring is still just a whisper of a shadow. I should try to take in some of Darśana's wisdom. Maybe I'll even give meditation a chance.
This made me want to read/listen to Kahlil Gibran's prophet, again.
No. I will check out the other Petra books, though.
I could not help but admire Darśana's patience throughout the story :)
