Prince Siddhartha and Peaceful Piggy Meditation are both excellent. Prince Siddhartha is good for anyone from any tradition. Peaceful Piggy Meditation is written by a Shambhala Buddhist and from that perspective, but still very good.

The Life of the Buddha
by Martha Aitchison
The tale of how a prince came to abandon a life of luxury and comfort and went away to discover the secret of happiness, suffering much penury before he reached his goal, seems the stuff of fairy stories. Yet it was a real man who achieved such a selfless and extraordinary deed. We know this man as the Buddha, the All Enlightened One, and this is his life, told as simply as possible for children, in words and drawings for them to colour.
