Lovely and amazing book

Would you listen to Petra on the Path of Buddha again? Why?

Yes, it's my favorite one. I find the storyline to be inspiring

What did you like best about this story?

Message about valuing unmaterial things in this life

Any additional comments?

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 for kids

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!

A wonderful trip to Shri Lanka

What made the experience of listening to Petra on the Path of Buddha the most enjoyable?

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.

What other book might you compare Petra on the Path of Buddha to and why?

This made me want to read/listen to Kahlil Gibran's prophet, again.

Have you listened to any of Lizzie Jones Stables’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No. I will check out the other Petra books, though.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, definitely.

Any additional comments?

I could not help but admire Darśana's patience throughout the story :)
