Overview

Beautifully commissioned artwork is combined here with clear and sensitively written narrative introducing young readers to some of the most significant beliefs, values, and traditions of the world's six main faiths. These books contain fact boxes about people, places, objects, and events, and a glossary of key terms. They have been produced in close associations with consultants from each of the six religions.Buddhist Stories focuses on stories about the life of Buddha.

Reviews

"Unlike the many religion books for young readers that focus upon the central tenets and rites as well as the cultural practices of its adherents, these titles are based on narratives. . . . Ganeri's writing is inviting and fluid. Libraries wanting more diverse information on world religions will find that these titles fit the bill nicely."  —School Library Journal
