The Master: stories of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá for children

Wonderfully told audio stories from the history of the Baha’i Faith, focusing on the life of the Son of the Founder of the Faith.

Abdu’l-Bahá, the son of Bahá’u’lláh, the Founder of the Baha’i Faith, was the perfect exemplar of its teachings. This collection of simple, inspiring stories for younger children takes us on a journey through His life.

The stories show how He overcame struggles and diffuculties with courage, and always thought about others. Even in the most challenging circumstances, He knew how to be happy. Abdu’l-Bahá held out the hand of friendship to all people. His life of humble service, of infinite kindness, love, compassion, humour and wisdom cannot fail to touch the heart.

Audio stories re-told and narrated by Sarah Perceval from the book ‘Stories of Abdu’l-Bahá’ by Jacqueline Mehrabi. Music by Ben Woodward.

“The stories are beautifully told. Sarah Perceval has a very expressive voice – inviting, clear and strong, and the characters come alive for us and ‘tell’ us how they are feeling. Each story is a good length for young children to enjoy, but you don’t have to be Bahá’í or a child to enjoy them!

Within the stories are joy and sadness, marriage, birth, death, kindness, charity, generosity and truth. As well as being entertaining, the stories teach us about The Bahá’í Faith and the universal human aspects of how people faced with a problem overcome their difficulties, and learn from the experience. A very enjoyable CD.”

“I spent a weekend next to the table where the Anis Foundation was playing the CD of the Compilation of Stories of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá . At the end of the weekend I felt I must buy copies for my grandchildren. Having the stories on a CD or MP3 player means that they can be listened to in the car, at bedtime or at family prayer and reflection time.

The stories are also ideal for use in children’s classes. Several of them are the same stories that can be found in Ruhi Book 3, although slightly differently told. This is a wonderful resource. I have no hesitation in recommending these stories to parents, grandparents and those who are involved in the education of children.”
