Overview. Babbitt. More Jataka Tales

Title: More Jataka Tales
Author: Ellen C. Babbitt

Comments: Ellen Babbitt wrote two volumes of Jataka tales for children. You will find just the stories in Babbitt's books, without the Buddha's framing of the tale. You can find out more about the Jataka tradition here: Jataka Tales.
