Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joyce Rice
When we are seeking to learn about cultures, religions, or countries that are new to us, it can be difficult to understand how people can live in a place where things are so different from what we consider normal. Here, the reader learns from a student much like himself what it is like to believe in a different religion, live in a different country, or celebrate in a different way. Inderjeet is thirteen-years-old, and he lives in the Punjab portion of India. Inderjeet's religion is called Sikh; the word means "disciple" in his language. Inderjeet's religion teaches him that all people are equal and should be treated the same way. Sikhism also teaches that all boys and men include Singh, which means "lion," as part of their name. The women and girls all have their own name and include Kaur, which means "princess," as part of their name. Sikhs follow the teaching of the Ten Gurus, who are historical holy teachers that instruct the people how to live and behave. The Sikhs have a holy book that contains hymns and teachings written by the Gurus and other holy men. Inderjeet's story includes information about the religion's worship, including special celebrations. A glossary of bold-faced terms and an index are included. Throughout the thirty-two pages of the book, illustrations abound. These include photographs as well as historical representations. Other books in this series focus on Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism, and Judaism. Each book addresses beliefs, food and clothes, styles of worship, places of worship, holy books, places, and festivals. This is an excellent series to include in the social science curriculum for the intended age group. Part of the "Our World of Faith" series. Reviewer: Joyce Rice
