Children's Dharma eBooks

Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Monastery of Singapore has a couple of children's Dharma books available for free distribution:
  • Tales of the Buddha's Former Lives - Stories 51-100 (Table of Contents, p. 1-100, p. 101-216). These are Jātaka Tales, I believe. "Tales of the Buddha's Former Lives is a collection of simple stories written along the line of Aesop's Fables. Though meant for readers of all ages, they are especially useful to older children and teenagers, as these stories promote and highlight virtuous conduct and good behaviour, especially those human values that contribute to harmony, pleasure and progress."
  • We Are Good Children - This is really sweet - it's colorful and pleasant, and also bilingual. ^_^ It's meant for little ones. "Children should be taught and instilled with the right morals and ethics since young. The objectives of this bilingual book are to introduce, familiarise and inculcate young children the virtues of Buddhism and eastern culture like filial piety, gratitude and compassion. Through this process, we hope children would be imbued with the positive traits of self-reflection and self-correction of non-virtuous behaviour and conduct."
