Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book from the "Culture Encyclopedia" series is a basic introduction to different types of religion. Readers will learn about people throughout the world and their spiritual beliefs. Each chapter is a brief summary of the different ways people celebrate and worship and their various kinds of beliefs. Included are examples with descriptions of the history and the various symbols used in each religion, including Christianity, Judaism, New Age, and Buddhism. The text is written in an easy-to-read format that helps captivate the reader's attention. The full-color pictures throughout the book are vivid and help create a visual understanding. Included are a table of contents, panels of little known facts on almost every page and an index. The glossary at the end lists some text words, although none of the words are bold-type in the text, which might confuse readers as to why they were chosen. A great classroom tool to use for reference in research and report writing or for readers who want to learn more about the world of religion. 2003, Mason Crest Publishers,
