I just got my son the book "the mouse & the buddha" from a museum gift shop yesterday (regrettably since it's used on amazon starting at a penny). We all love it, including my SO, which is not small feat.
I would love to find similar books with prominent figures in other religions that similarly have wisdom to share minus any doctrine or worship. Does anyone know any?
***If you're not familar, the book is about a mouse that eats offerings made to a large gold Buddha at night. It is not described as offerings, just a feast. While the mouse eats the Buddha shares his wisdom with him "be kind to others" "we all live under the same sun" etc. The mouse goes on to live his life based on those principles & doesn't forget the most important to "love one another".***
