Donna Simmons has crafted a beautiful play that can be used with equal success in classroom or homeschool. It calls for characters who can be of different ages and differently levels of participation. And best, it is an engaging story, one which dramatizes well at levels ranging from mixed classroom presentation to sophisticated professional performances.

Donna’s inspiration to transform this beloved Jataka Tale (Jataka tales are stories of Buddha’s previous incarnations) into a play when she realized that the principle characters were outstanding presentations of the qualities of the four temperaments.

With very simple props, a few children and a bit of joy this lovely play can come to life for you and the children you teach.
