Little Buddhas

Justin McDaniel

Oxford University Press

The chapter focuses on a new generation of Buddhist adventure stories (texts, comic books, and films) for children. These stories are much more popular than didactic and systematic Buddhist lessons, yet they have been ignored by scholars. This chapter describes the new Buddhist pedagogical material for children in Thailand and its importance in their education.
