About Daisaku Ikeda Children’s Stories
Daisaku Ikeda children’s stories impart hope, courage, friendship and peace through vivid adventures of children around the world and seek to inspire them to believe in themselves and have big dreams.
The stories have also been shown on TV in more than 25 countries including Japan, Iceland, Spain, Panama, Australia, Nepal, Malaysia and the Philippines. They have also been used as educational materials in classrooms in India and the Philippines.
In an interview, Dr. Ikeda explained his motivation for writing stories for young people: “Children’s stories epitomize peace. War, on the other hand, deprives children of their dreams and slams the door on their future.” He adds, “All children possess innate dignity, rich creativity and vitality,” and says “children have the inborn ability to find hope in the most hopeless environment…. They are hope itself.”
