Each book in the enlightening This Is My Faith series features true-life photographs and interviews with a child who talks about his or her faith and discusses its role in the life of the family. Boys and girls speak of the rituals, obligations, and joys that are basic to their religions. The children in these books come from many different cultures and countries around the world, thus reflecting the global nature of humanity's religious impulse. Photos show children in their daily activities, and with families and friends at religious services and festivals. Books are available in both paperback and hardcover editions.

Although Buddhism originated in India, it soon spread to Tibet, China, Japan, and most recently to the West. A child talks about Buddhism's contemplative nature, and about the festivals and rituals practiced by various Buddhist sects.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2–4—These simple, attractive books introduce world faiths. Basic beliefs, food and clothing, worship, scriptures, festivals, life events, and holy places are covered either through the featured child's words or in "Learn More" sections. Numerous clear, color photos add to the texts. The major flaw is the maps, which are roughly drawn and omit country boundaries, and the lack of concrete data/statistics. In addition, some definitions are incomplete or unclear. Still, these books are the most thorough for this audience. The "Religions of the World" series (Rosen) is extremely basic and skimps on special occasions. The"Places of Worship" series (Gareth Stevens) concentrates on places and types of worship, as does the "Start-Up Religion" series (Cherrytree).—Ann W. Moore, Schenectady County Public Library, NY

Review:

"This series is a beautiful introduction to young readers about religions around the world. ... Libraries that do not have any current books about different religions should consider this series."
--Lane Education Service District, 2008
