Mahavira: The Hero of Nonviolence (Wisdom Tales)

We rated this book:


Mahavira was a great hero in India and even to people from other countries around the world. He deeply believed in loving all living creatures and following a life of non-violence. Mahavira was an Indian prince. He was born in a palace with every luxury he could have wanted, yet he gave it all up to be a monk. He practiced Jainism, which meant he believed in non-violence and having respect and compassion for all living beings, including animals and plants.

I thought this book was filled with many good facts, and the illustrations are beautiful. It’s the perfect book if you’re doing a school project on Mahavira (or even Ghandi or Martin Luther King, Jr. since they share the same philosophy of non-violence.) If you’re looking for a book that is just fun to read, this probably is not the right book for you. It’s written as a bunch of facts, not as a story. It doesn’t have a plot or conflict or figurative writing – the things that make a book interesting to read over and over.
