Congratulations on your silver book award!
Thank you for sharing the beauty of the world’s religions with kids! As our communities become increasingly diverse, we appreciate your passion for creating a kinder and more peaceful world.
Several major faith traditions — including Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and Sikhism — are explored in this book. Left-hand pages have rhyming couplets that are great for preschoolers-kindergarteners. Right-hand pages offer additional information that kids in elementary school (and their grown-ups) will find interesting. And, as you will see, similar ideas often show up in more than one tradition!
