Grade 5-8–Wonderfully colorful in images, language, and fact, these overviews are appropriate for basic understanding of the religions and relevant for youngsters to discover new information about their own faiths. Each volume presents fundamental beliefs and faith foundations, current status and practices of the religion around the globe, and a time line of historically significant events. One important feature is a consideration for different practices of the same religion within different cultures. The books are enumerated with full-color photographs on every page, charts, maps, and tables that help to define each religion. These titles will enhance the education of diverse populations.–Jodi Kearns, University of Akron, OH
