About this product
- DescriptionAn enjoyable tale that introduces young readers to an important ancient empire. While on a very important mission from the King, young Jaya encounters the deities Shiva, Inanna, and Hercules. Leaping from gold coins on her mother's golden necklace, they help Jaya achieve her goal and discover strengths she didn't kw she had. <i>Jaya's Golden Necklace</i> is the first children's book to tell of the origin and cultural roots of the beloved Buddha image. A story of East and West, it teaches lessons and entertains while also opening a door into Asian culture. Set along the Silk Road, Jaya's journey highlights the interconnected and multicultural worlds of yesterday and today. This engaging, fast-moving tale of empowerment will help children relate better to the powerful beings in human history's rich religions and myths. It also conveys the independence, resilience, and creativity that make Jaya a true heroine for today.
