From Booklist:

Reviewed with Victoria Parker's The Vatican.

Gr. 2-5. These readable titles in the new Holy Places series use a sacred site as a starting point for talking about the religion. Clear color photos on every page and lots of boxed insets with information on where, why, when, and how people celebrate faith make the format exceptionally attractive. What is the Sistine Chapel? What is the first sacrament? What is the Hajj? What is the Qur'an? Who wears what? Each book has a section on feast days and festivals and on other holy places, and both books make the point that Jerusalem is a special place for Christians, Jews, and Muslims. Mecca includes a personal account by a woman from England who went on Hajj. Vatican has a profile of the present Pope. Introducing each religion in this way--through history, culture, places, festivals, people, and prayer--works very well. A glossary rounds out each book. Hazel Rochman
