Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Using revealing photography and detailed personal accounts to give unique insight into the diversity of religious faith as experienced by children across the world, this is an ideal book for families to read together.

Review:

"Employing the crisp design for which DK is known, Buller offers a concise and kid-friendly overview of various religions, bolstered by the comments and observations of children from around the globe. Hannah from Ghana describes how her parents sometimes speak in tongues at Pentecostal Christian Sunday services in her home country. Yael, from Israel, likes to say the Shema at her Orthodox synagogue each Saturday. And Sheetal, a nine-year-old Sikh girl from the U.K., celebrates the spring festival of Baisakhi. After providing a general introduction to the concepts of faith and religion, Buller explores the traditions, geographic location, symbols, holy books, festivals, rites of passage and other elements of the world's six major recognized religions as well as other faiths (including Baha'i, Taoism and Jainism). Each spread features top-quality color photos of religious items and practices alongside their brief descriptions. Personal reflections from various children — whose photos are also featured — make this an uplifting and appealing volume likely to invite both further exploration and understanding. Ages 5-8. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
