A portion of the proceeds from the sales of this book helps support The Global Fund for Children’s grantmaking to community-based projects serving vulnerable children around the world.
Faith explores through full-color photographs the many ways in which the world celebrates and practices religious belief, highlighting the common threads-praying and meditating, chants and songs, holy books, cleansing, holy places, holidays and festivals, important events, dress, food and drink, and helping others. Spare text accompanies the pictures of children and identifies the specific religion and practices. Concluding notes for adults to share with youngsters provide more information on each one. The excellent photographs are clear and colorful and invite careful observation. A world map showing the various homes of the children depicted is included. As stated in the book, "Faith highlights the common threads that bring people together in reverence and joy."-Margaret R. Tassia, Millersville University, PA
