    I am giving this book 5 stars. While I know that Buddhism is a practice of mindfulness and meditation in search of awakening, I never really knew how it started. Well, this book taught me a lesson. The story is simple, but one that I think will resonate with many children today. While ...

    Though not historically accurate, it gives a great little insight into the world of the Buddha and makes the idea of happiness a more understandable concept for younger readers. I would recommend this to parents who would like to introduce them to concepts of Buddhism at a young age. ...

    I think I would have liked this better with less of a contemporary take on it/more realistic presentation. While I do not know for sure he didn't have stuffed animals, somehow I don't think he would have them or called them that. However, I understand that the text is for a younger, mo...

    A relevant picture book for our times. Little Sid learns early on that money can't buy happiness, and he goes off on his own to find Happiness with a capital H. I found the telling interesting and direct, without being sticky sweet. And the illustrations are dreamlike and beautiful. ...

    The story of Sid is an all too familiar tale for many children. Parents would rather buy gifts and items than be present in their life. The story of Little Sid and his family was a wonderful reminder for parents to be present in the lives of their children and a reminder to children to...

    The story of Buddha, made simple for a younger audience. Children will easily understand Little Sid's feelings of being left out and ignored by his busy parents. Beautiful, colorful pictures bring the tale to life. Caveat: There are many speech bubbles and asides that make this one a l...

    *3.5 stars I think it beautifully captures the essence of Siddhartha in a kid friendly way. The illustrations and colors are beautiful, I am just not sure a kid would fully understand ALL the messages. Although I do love the ending where he just wants his parents to be present. This b...
