A Faith Like Mine by Laura Buller (DK Publishing, 2005).
This easy-to-read reference guide gives children a photo-packed tour of the world's major religions and how people across the globe observe their traditions.
The book begins with descriptions of the universal aspects of faith (defining it as what people "trust, hold true and are loyal to") and includes a color-coded map outlining each country's primary religion.
An overview of the major world religions — including those less commonly found in the U.S. such as Zoroastrianism and Baha'i — follows with short commentaries from young people.
With a colorful and quick-paced format, this book can be a starting point for parents to engage their family in conversations about how religious beliefs are similar and different, and how they give purpose and comfort to youngsters across the globe.
