Book Review: The Day the Buddha Woke Up

About This Resource

Summary The Day the Buddha Woke Up was written with very young children in mind, and tells the story of the Buddha’s life and path from birth to enlightenment in clear, simple prose.


A board book, its concise 18 pages are delightfully illustrated by internationally renowned artist Rima Fujita. Author Andrea Miller, the deputy editor of Lion’s Roar Magazine, has emphasized that the book is not just for Buddhist families, but rather can be a tool for non-Buddhists to learn about another religion, and it is in this spirit that she wrote this sweet introduction to the teachings of the Buddha.
