I highly reccommend "Buddhism Plain & Simple" by Steve Hagen.
After you read that, read "Screwtape letters" If you want a story. Its written by a Jesuit Preist, but the parallels between christianity and
buddhism are really apparent if you know the basics. (The screwtape letters is letters wirtten by a deamon screwtape, to his nephew who is trying to
win over his first soul.)
Then get another Hagen book, I lent mine out so I forgot its title.. but im sure they're all good. Or some Thich Nhat Hanh books, like "Living
Buddha, Living Christ."
Alan Watts books are really good, but they're more about Vendanta which is Hindu, but If you want to, I highly highly recommend "The
Book", by Watts.
Im Roman Catholic and these are just some of the books I've read. Buddhism is a Way of living, not a religion; so your daughter (and you) can remain
Catholic with no problems or conflicts.
