Culture for a young child

My nine year old enjoys reading from this book and learning about other cultures and religions. It's about right for her age group and gives enough information to spark interest without going into too much detail to be boring or confusing.

excellent reference

I purchased this book because I wanted an overview of the main world religions. This book did not disappoint. Each of the religions is covered in a sensitive way and gives the main philosophies and beliefs behind the religion. My only complaint is now that my appetite is whetted, I feel I want more detail! The religions covered include Hinduism, Sikhism, Judaism, Christianity, and Buddhism. Other religions are covered in less detail and native and ancient religions are briefly brushed upon. The version I had was an internet-tie-in, where links were given for more information (links are maintained and updated at the parent site). What this book did for me was to confirm my own belief that we all believe in the same things, but we just call them different names. Sad that we all just can't see that and live together peacefully.

Colorful, fun, and accessible

This book is great for young people. They cover a lot of different traditions, including some Indigenous traditions and African diasporic religions. The book expresses complex concepts in a simplified form making it easy for young readers. I am using in a Middle School religion class. Additionally, the book has linked to relevant Internet sites which is a plus. So far, this is my favorite children's world religion text.

Great, Fun Resource

I bought this book so my children could learn about other religions. I recently took a college Religions of the World class and I used this book throughout my class. It simplified complex religions and made them easier for me to understand. The internet links are great. There were many wonderful sites that make it fun to learn. I will definately buy more books from this series for my children.

Dang! What a Great Book!

This is a wonderful book. It took me hours to read and I read it thoroughly and slowly to absorb everything I could. Later, I'll use it as a resource, but this book is great! I have never read an encyclopedia of world religions that was so complete and interesting. The writing is great. I'm crazy about the Usborne series and my students love them too. I'll have to say goodbye to this book for awhile as my students will be grabbing it up.
